I have a rackmount AX Ultra IIe that is giving FreeBSD panics during the
install, or should I say boot, because I dont get that far.  It
stops with a "PCI bus A" error.

Netra AX1105-500 (UltraSPARC-IIe 500MHz), No Keyboard
OpenBoot 4.0, 256 MB memory installed, Serial #50752175.
Ethernet address 0:3:ba:6:6a:a5, Host ID: 83066aaa.

Executing last command: boot cdrom
Boot device: /pci at 1f,0/pci at 1,1/ide at d/cdrom at 2,0:f  File and args:

A test-all errors on the floppy drive, which, being a rackmount clone, it
doesn't have.  It loads and runs Solaris fine, but I'm a FreeBSD guy (x86)
and would rather fight with this than give in to Sun.

Any ideas?
