Nope.  No PAE.  The nvidia driver doesn't work w/ PAE plus I don't need it.
 I also tried setting hw.physmem in loader.conf to something less like 3G.
 The system definitely was only using 3G but the driver still crapped out.
 I'm asuming now that if it's even possible then it's something I need to do
at the BIOS level.
