Hi Matt,

Thanks a lot for replying. I would like to try this. But there is one 
problem. If I load via /boot/loader.conf, I can bail out at runtime with 
'disable-module radeonkms' issued at the loader prompt. I can then boot 
with a functional X.

Is there an escape kludge if I load via /etc/rc.conf::kld_list ?
