Jim,

Thanks for your reply, but my issue was resolved the other day and I
did not update this thread with the "solution".  I added acpi=off to
my boot up and it "fixed" everything.  I'm able to use USB devices and
all networking.  My logs told me to add acpi=off and file a bug
report, so that's what I'll do.

Sorry for not updating the thread, but thanks for your help.

Kevin
