FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE install crashes on 8006-2LP card/SuperMicro PDSMi

I have a server with a SuperMicro PDSMi motherboard, a Pentium D 930
proc, 3 GB of RAM and a 3Ware Escalade 8006-2LP RAID card.  The array is
two Western Digital 80 GB drives, set as RAID 1.

When attempting a CD install of FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE, the install goes as
far as this in debug mode before locking up:

GEOM: new disk twed0
ATA Psuedo RAID loaded

At that point, the server locks completely.

When trying to boot it without ACPI enabled, the server paniced with a
pagefault and then rebooted.

Any ideas?
