I now have DragonFly installed on the asus! From the boot menu, I
selected the option to escape into the loader prompt and from there I
did loadall. I kicked off the installer and it boots up now.
However, when I do ifconfig, I don't see the re0 driver for the wired

This is showing a RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI express gigabit ethernet
controller for the wired connection
and for wifi: aualcomm atheros ar9485 wireless network adepter.
