PC works correctly (other OSes setups normal with no problems)
But when i try to setup UNIX:
1. Boot from CD
2. Select custom setup
3. Create new partition and write it to hdd (with "W" hotkey)/or not write - it have no metter.
4. ! when i try to write labels, installation program show message:
  "Unable to find device node for /dev/ad1s1b in /dev!
  The creation of filesystems will be aborted."
if i do not use "W" then after "commit" PC going to reboot :\
try to write filesystems to hdd
