While -z helps, it's still not long enough. Here's what I see on

pccard: card inserted, slot 0
ata1-slave: timeout waiting for interrupt
ata1-slave: ATAPI identify failed
ad0: 6194MB <IBM-DADA-26480> [13424/15/63] at ata0-master UDMA33
acd0: CDROM <CD-224E> at ata1-master PIO4
Mounting root from ufs:/dev/ad0s1a
route: writing to routing socket: Network is unreachable
add net default: gateway Network is unreachable

Then the login: prompt comes up. After a few seconds, the ed0 device
shows up (on the same line, so I'll duplicate that here):

login: ed0 at port 0x300-0x31f irq 10 flags 0x80000 slot 0 on pccard0
ed0: address 00:e0:98:83:ee:da, type Linksys (16 bit)

Mar 24 10:59:56 toshibity pccardd[44]: pccardd started
Mar 24 10:59:58 toshibity /kernel: ed0: device timeout

Usually there are one or two more timeout messages. From that point, it
works fine. For the $15 I paid for this NetGear card, I can live with

Uh...this isn't normal behavior, is it?

(Thanks to everyone for the previous responses!)
