Problems with 8.0 Beta 4

I have switched to working hardware.  Sure makes a difference ;-)

Now I am down to a couple issues:

1.  When booting I first get the following:

F1: FreeBSD
F5: Drive 0

Boot: F1

At that point it just sits and starts adding #s at the end of the Boot  
statement.  If I press F5 (none of the other F keys do anything), then  
I get another Boot:  F1 line and its sits for a moment and then boots  
from the disk.  I used the standard install with the FreeBSD Boot  

After that the system comes up and runs fine.  I am only using it for  
network testing so haven't placed any great load on it but everything  
I have tried works fine - until I try and shut it down.  Then I get a  
panic at the very end.  It also does not shut off the power.  I have a  
console log of the entire boot/shutdown process.  The only user  
command I entered was shutdown -p now.

/boot.config: -Dh
