I have had difficulty installing BSD on at least one Thinkpad model..


But before you do anything else, can you check to be sure the USB CD drive you 
are using is getting enough power?

If it does not have a 'wall wart' it may at least need power from a second 
USB-to-DC cord attached to a *separate* machine.

Yah - this is one of those 'should not be a problem..' issues, but it has been one.
