Sorry it took so long for me to reply.  #dayjob

Anyhow, the gop get output is:
mode 3: 1366x768x32, stride=1376
    frame buffer: address=0, size=0
    color mask: R=00xx0000, G=0000ff00, B=000000ff

I moved the i915_load="YES" to /etc/rc.conf and got the same result
(outside of no longer seeing the lines showing i915, drm, iicbus, iic
and iicbb modules loading that is).

Any ideas?  Is there a serial console I can get to easily that would
maybe let me see a little farther?  If so, can you point me to a doc
that shows me how to set it up?
