I've had(and have) several fairly new Dell PowerEdge2950 servers running 
FreeBSD 7.1/amd64 just fine.  Is this a brand new 2950 (2950 III, or 
whatever), or an older one?  I'd make sure that the BIOS, BMC, and PERC 
(if you have one) firmwares are all up to date.  Barring that, have you 
tried another installation CD?
