I did already test the drivers. and still it froze up unless I ran in
boot option 3 "Safe Mode', in which case it seemed to run indefinitly.
Wish I knew just what safe mode is as applies to PCBSD.
But may have other problems too. I removed an unneeded pci IDE card
from the system and at first it seemed to run for several hours without
the driver change. but since then, the freeze-up are real quick. Almost
like the computer has a heat problem cause the longer the computer runs,
the shorter the time between boot-up and freeze-up in normal mode..
Yesterday I installed what was supposed to be my new "main"
installation on one of 4 partitions. Altho it installed fine, suddenly
the other two BSD partitions got thier sub-partition ( slices )
relocated and I can no longer boot to them even after changing the
entries in their respective /etc/fstab's. The first boot menu says
"Invalid Partition" if I press F3 or F4.
