I'm writing to note that PCBSD 7.0 alpha installs problem free on a Compaq
(HP) ML-370.

This computer is more complex than an average computer.  The hardware
includes multiple processors (SMP), hardware based SCSI raid controller,
multiple SCSI busses, and IDE/ATAPI controllers.  Here are some of the
hardware particulars excerpted from dmesg:

CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) III, 1266MHz (1258.22-MHz 686-class CPU)
FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 2 CPUs  cpu0 (BSP): APIC ID:
