> I have installed FreeBSD 4.0 on my PC
Not specifically an answer to your question, but, is there a reason
you are attempting a new install of such an old version of FreeBSD?
If not, I would suggest installing V 4.8. You should have not
trouble installing things from /usr/ports or packages if you start
with the recent version.
I did boot from CDROM, but in the "Media" I had to put "DOS", cause my PC refuses
