Failure to probe devices

I have a Pentium 4 1.8 Ghz on an ASUS P4S533 motherboard.  FreeBSD
5.1 fails to install - it just hangs while probing for devices, and I 
left it for
many minutes.  There is no ZIP or JAZZ drive; just an IDE disk and
an LG CD-RW drive.

This machine installs and runs FreeBSD 4.7 with no problems, and the CD
for 5.1 has been used successfully on other machines.  Any clues, please?

Please cc me.
