FreeBSD v. 6.0 (amd64) can't be installed on my machine: kernel panics during nitial booting from the installation CD. But FreeBSD v. 6.0 (i386) can be easily installed and works fine on the same machine.

Hardware configuration used:

GigaByte GA-K8N SLI motherboard (nForce4 chipset)
AMD Athlon64 X2 4400+ CPU
Matrox Millenium II PCI video card
Tekram DC-390U2B PCI-SCSI controller
IBM DMVS18D 0100 SCSI-3 disk

Is there a way to install amd64 release?

The problem repeats every time I try to install the system.
