          hey there, i got a bug to report ,
i am from india and recently i got my hands on a free bsd issue, after hearing a lot of it i finally decided to install it , i got a 40 gb drive formatted , installed win 98 opened the iso files using win rar and i went to the tools copied the fdimage to the floppy folder and copied te image of kern and mfsroot to two floppy drives.i re booted my system made a change in bios to boot in floppy .
i inserted my kern floppy and it booted and after some time it gave an echo and asked me insert anothr floppy ( mfs root) it started to read the floppy and gave som random white charecters in the screen , (some thing found and some thing not found, it went on for a few moments and then it stalled, it first gave a time out and then it stalled i waited for 15 min and then i turned off the computer, i tried the same in another machine it worked perfectly fine.

now lemme give the description of my pc. 

my pc works on a seagate 40 gb hard disk with and amd k6  processer and a 64 mb ram . a normal wheel mouse . and that all i think you need to know , if there is any thing else plz lemme know

ya aftr that i read the ya aftr that i read the install manual and saw the same problem of a guy  , you asked to a line "hint" in the loader .conf file  so i did but again the same problem is there any other way to install this or if any other line that i missed
