amd64 and FreeBSD 5.4-BETA1

Ok, I managed to install FreeBSD 5.4-BETA1 (amd64) on my new (brand,
new, shiny...) amd64 machine:
FreeBSD 5.4-BETA1 FreeBSD 5.4-BETA1 #0: Sat Mar 19 21:45:36
UTC 2005     root at 

The 'dmesg.boot' file is attached.

However, I must disable acpi in the boot menu, or else the machine stops
responding after printing the 'acd0: ...' line.
The machine has a RS480M2-IL mainboard from MSI, and an Athlon 64 3000+
(1.8 GHz) cpu.

There are many options that one can change in the BIOS, but this is my
first amd64 machine, so I don't know which 'knobs' I can change, and
which I shouldn't touch.

Any hints on what I can try to enable acpi?
