PC-BSD 9.1 RC1 (and 9.0 stable) Won't Recognize GeForce 8400

In a nutshell, I'm trying to boot the 9.1 RC1 install DVD; it's one I picked up at the Ohio Linux Fest at the BSD booth. I've tried two different mother boards and two different cards in the nVidia 8400GS series. One is by MSI and one by ASUS. The board layouts are different. A GeForce? 200 series on another machine works fine, so it seems unique to this series. The system correctly identifies either card as nVidia, and then loads the nVidia driver. But when X starts up, the screen goes to a mish mash of colored squares and jagged patterns. Selecting the VESA driver at startup generates exactly the same result, so it may not be the nVidia driver itself. Kernel? Installer?
