Thanks for the help.  "5,9,10,11,11,9,10,11" didn't work for me,  
however, you did inspire me to play with the bios settings!

Here's what I found when I individually changed the values in the BIOS  
setup:

BIOS	FREEBSD BOOT MESSAGE
----	--------------------
INTA	Slot 29 INTA
INTB	Slot 31 INTB
	Slot 31 INTB
	Slot 31 INTB
INTC	Slot 29 INTC
INTD	Slot 29 INTB
INTE	?
INTF	?
INTG	?
INTH	Slot 29 INTD

Now, while I have no clue what that means :), I was able to find out  
that if I changed either INTD or INTE in the BIOS setup, the fxp0  
device worked and the device timeouts were gone.

So my setup right now is: 11,11,11,10,11,11,11,11

Now to setup APM ...
