Installing FreeBSD on AMD64 - system freezes during boot

Hi, all,

I am trying to install FreeBSD 6.2 Stable on my machine (AMD X2 AM2
4200 64bits, Asus M2N SLI Deluxe, nVidia 7950GS, 1 HD IDE, 1 HD SATA2,
1 DVDRW), but FreeBSD freezes right after detecting my HDs. I do not
see the install screen.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Is there a boot option I can use to
successfully install FreeBSD?

There are Ubuntu and Frugalware in the other partitions running OK.

Thanks in advance,
