    The shifted MAC address is a clear sign of problems.  It sounds
    like the RE driver is not accessing the RE hardware's EEPROM 
    correctly.  That could also account for the parity error NMI,
    since PCI bus accesses are parity checked.  It sounds like the
    driver is not properly recognizing the device.

    Here's a question... I assume the Laptop has a CDROM drive.  If
    you boot a FreeBSD CD.. one of the newer ones that can give you
    a live shell prompt without having to install FreeBSD, does FreeBSD
    recognize the RE device and can you ifconfig it up?  Is the MAC
    address shifted?
