 This was the problem..  Thanks for all the help with that particular
problem... now on to the next one ;-)

 I have a 486/66 with a 3com card installed. There was a problem with
the shared memory being disabled. The dos software that is being used
needs it turned off.. and FreeBSD wants it on.. this is a problem that
i have not figured out how to route around. Meanwhile I have been
sucessful in getting the machines to boot correctly and come right up.
but the 8meg machines crash right as xdm starts :-(. I have plenty of
swap but it seems to have a problem right when you fill the memory up.
Swapinfo on the machine shows that it has plenty of room available.
Any ideas?

 Somthing else that I am going to be working on is creating an Xkernel
style configuration for Low memory machines. If anyone else is
interested in this let me know.

PS> I am back ;-)
