I've been trying to install FreeBSD 5.2.1 on an i386 machine running XP SP1 
and VMware.

I created the floppy disks and started the virtual machine. The kernel starts 
loading and (i think everything is OK with the devices) as soon as it tries 
to mount root, it panics saying:

Mounting root from ufs:/dev/md0
exec /sbin/init: error 5
exec /sbin/oinit: error 5
panic: vrele: negative ref cnt
cpuid: 0

it then syncs disk and flies off to Unix heaven.

any thoughs?
