livecd problems - won't mount root

I'm trying to build a web server with FreeBSD 4.11 that runs off of a
CD rather than a hard disk. I'm trying to make an iso using livecd 1.2.4b
and the install goes well, but when I try to boot the system from the iso
I get the mountroot> prompt.
Here is the fstab file that I put in the live_root install directory
prior to the iso generation:
# Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump
/dev/ad0s1b none swap sw 0 0
/dev/acd0c / cd9660 ro,noatime 0 0
/dev/ad0s1f /tmp ufs rw 2 2
/dev/ad0s1e /var ufs rw 2 2
proc /proc procfs rw 0 0
I would like the hard drive to be used for logfiles, tmp files, etc.
But, I would like the rest of the system to boot off of the cdrom, and
then keep running off the cdrom image.
Is there something I am doing wrong?
