I have been able to install freebsd, however, I get this error at boot up:

acpi 1287: error: method execution failed, ae_aml_region_limit
cbb0: unsupported card type detected

Any thoughts,

Most likely you just copied the .iso files to the CD-ROM, instead of
burning them as an image.  You can verify this by checking the contents
of the CDs; if there's only one large file, that's the problem.

How to restore a .iso file to a CD is dependent on your CD-recording
software; for example, with Roxio software on Windows, you should be
able to right-click on the .iso file and choose Record to CD.
