[Soekris] net4501 with FreeBSD 4.6-STABLE

I just built+booted several images built from recent -stable sources w/o a
problem.  I'm running an older BIOS but doubt that's the issue.  Send me
mail directly with more details and I'll try to help.  Presumably you're
using one of the canned configurations to get started.  If not, try that.
