that was cool! 

I know now the card adapter works, I can boot to the
cd, its recognize properly and I can see activity
light as a do:

gzcat $image | dd of=/dev/da0 bs=16

but when I reboot, i get a "read error" again.
I'm considering purchasing yet, another, not so "el
chipo" card and see if that works.

thanks for the great info. And thanks Chris for the
cool idea.
