Just a "me too"...
I'm seeing similar behavior here, with a Crucial Technology 256MB card
(which didn't work at all with a pb13 image) in a Soekris 4501. An
annotated (manual) screen-scrape looks like:
BIOS drive C: is disk0
BIOS 639kB/64512kB available memory
FreeBSD/i386 bootstrap loader, Revision 0.8

- <--- Very slowly twirling cursor here
Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or any other key for command prompt.

Type '?' for a list of commands, 'help' for more detailed help.
A 32MB SanDisk card in the same 4501 works fine.
