MBR problem with FreeBSD 5.3 beta

I just reinstalled the my "win boot device" and obviously, windows
started to run again... although the horrible "beep" problem happens
everytime I reboot my pc from FreeBSD (whenever I boot my pc from windows,
it resets normally!). According to my motherboard manual, the beep sound
matches the one that is described as no DRAM installed or detected.
As told by one of you guys here, about the LBA, I just couldn't find any
option in my bios to change this... :(
I tried to load my bios default configuration (in order to clear
whatever the FreeBSD instalation has done to it) but the problem remained...
Does anyone have any idea about what to do?
I just got happy when I saw you answered my question,
