Failed to Boot

I am new to FreeBSD with a little experience in Linux and of course have used Windows. I have installed the Freebsd 4.8 from a CD that I downloaded and burned. I got the 610mb iso.

I am using a boot manager named BootIt  and have win2000, linux and other systems installed.

When I installed FreeBSD I set it not to modify my boot manager.  Upon my first boot it booted to the point of a prompt with the words: mount root> and informed me that i needed to supply a file system and device.

What do I need to do to make it boot to a normal command line? I searched the faq and could find nothing about it in the Install manual either.
