    It might be enough to just turn on packet mode with boot0cfg, but I
    have found often that older BIOSes must be set to use LBA mode too.

Ah poop. It was installed on a more modern PC (Intel BX chipset) and I think that's using LBA.

Never mind! I can always use this computer as a server for a couple of months to see if it's more stable than old pal FreeBSD 5, and if it is I can just set the older machine up from scratch and swap back over :)
