Thanks for the quick reply.   In 9.0, it looks like sbp is commented
out in the GENERIC kernel.

# FireWire support
device		firewire	# FireWire bus code
# sbp(4) works for some systems but causes boot failure on others
#device		sbp		# SCSI over FireWire (Requires scbus and da)
device		fwe		# Ethernet over FireWire (non-standard!)
device		fwip		# IP over FireWire (RFC 2734,3146)
device		dcons		# Dumb console driver
device		dcons_crom	# Configuration ROM for dcons

btw, I don't get a boot failure.  Once the 60-second timeout expires,
the boot process continues and ends with a working login prompt.  I'm
just wondering how I can find out what it causing the message....
