There's no indication of the FreeBSD version in readme.txt but the kernel
compile method looks more suited to FreeBSD-4.*.

You will need to choose a different install method

Or use a different network card for the install at least.

When the OS is up and running follow the instructions in readme.txt except:
Copy GENERIC to MYKERNEL and then edit MYKERNEL.  Always best to have an
original GENERIC around.
