Yeah.  I tried with and without.  No matter what I do after a ping, even a 
single ping packet, it does:

IOMMU fault virtual address 0x63206000
panic: pcib: uncorrectable DMA error AFAR 0xc0758818 AFSR 0x4100ff0060800000
cpuid = 0;

Not good news.  I may end up having to install Solaris on this box in that 
case, something I want to avoid.  Any other OSs worth suggesting?
