causing the problem, so would someone point me to the syntax for
disabling a module preload?
I was tracking down a similar hang and had to disable acpi (turns out
I'm an idiot and the apparent hang at boot was because I forgot console
was redirected to the serial port of the machine next to it), but I had
to jump through hoops to do it it seems. I believe all you have to do
is 'unset acpi_load' at the boot loader prompt. I had tried 'set
acpi_load=NO', and finally 'unset module_path' to keep the kernel from
Hope this helps,
After the last couple of days of cvsup's, the system now boots and runs.
I haven't tested much on it yet, as I just got a working kernel config,
based on OLDCARD, late last night. I've attached the output of dmesg for
anyone interested. Some things to note, this system doesn't have a

bluetooth, and firewire ports, an nvidia geforce 2 go, and is intel
815-based with a regular p3 chip, not the mobile version. Also, again,
it's a legacy-free model, so no serial, game, or parallel ports, just
lots of usb ports.
Also, in sysconfig, since usb mice appear to be supported in the OS,
could sysinstall be patched to allow you to select usm0 as the mouse
