I want to install distribution of the freebsd 5.4 operating system ,but I get an error saying the drive geometry is incorrect:Warning : A geometry of 77543/16/63 for ad3 is incorrect.I  selected the "G" command from sysinstall's menu to set the geometry manually and I try to finsh  installation but, When I tried to reboot after installation it doesn't work.
also I can't solve this problem from bios.
I used 40Go hard disk.
Thanks  help me to find solution to this problem.
