FreeBSD 5.4 RC2 on a Compaq Laptop?

Has anyone had any success getting 5.4RC2 installed on a Compaq Presario
laptop?  According to my BIOS, I have a Presario R3200 (Athlon XP
processor).  I get the splash screen, it begins the boot process
and then it just shuts off the computer.

I've tried to disable ACPI, but there appears to be no provision
for that in the BIOS...

Any help would be most appreciated.  And thanks for all the hard work;
it runs like a champ on my desktop box.
