6.2-RC1 em(4) issue - freezes during CD boot

I'm attempting to install 6.2-RC1 on a box that ran 5.3, 5.4, 6.0, and
6.1 for the past few years, but the 6.2-RC1 CD won't boot. After it
detects the em0 NIC, before it gets into sysinstall, it freezes solid.
I've let it sit there for over an hour.
I know there has been some recent work on em(4), but it doesn't appear
all the issues are resolved. I'm not sure what I should try, what
information I could provide that might be useful, etc. I'd be more than
happy to help troubleshoot this, with some guidance on what I could do
to be helpful.
