I had the exact same problem, from my experience, if you boot and install
directly from the CD it will work. If you boot and install off the floppies,
you get the error you mentined.
The only way around this (if your computer wont boot directly off the 5.1 ISO)
is to use the 'ftp' installation option, because it doesnt need to mount on
I networked two computers and ftp'd between them, otherwise you could get a
net connection and ftp it that way.
Out of curiosity, did you create your boot disks from the images on the CD or
drectly from the freebsd site (I have only had this problem with the disk
images off the cd)
