I've tried booting using the 'default', booting with 'ACPI' disabled, and booting in 'safe mode'. Once the login prompt comes up a few seconds later the system becomes unresponsive (i.e. pressing any keys including numlock / capslock produces no response whatsoever).

Good news. I just tried the ISO posted at http://www.livebsd.com/dfly/ and it booted without any problems, I used the installer, exited it and rebooted the system and the installed system booted from the hard drive without any issues.

My Audigy 2 appears to work with a little kldload prompting, which leaves only two mysteries:

1) dmesg | less shows that DF thinks I don't have an ATA-66 cable or something of the like on my first IDE interface where my (only) hard drive is connected, I do have an ATA-133 rated cable, and the hard drive is an ATA-100 device.

2) I'm guessing there isn't any support for the integrated Realtek 8169 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter I have. I have a 3com and Kingston network card laying around though that I can stick in, and I'm willing to take a stab at helping whomever get the integrated ethernet controller worker. I don't think I could write one myself, but I might be able to modify an existing driver to get it to work with the right advice.

I'm subscribed to the newsgroup, it is isn't necessary to CC me.
