FreeBSD on an old Compaq

I recently won a Compaq ProLiant 5000R in an auction on Ebay.  It arrived 
yesterday and now I want to put FreeBSD on it.  Unfortunately, I can't seem 
to find a way to cause the system to boot from the CD and booting from the 
floppy returns an "Unexpected EOF" on the kernel (kern.flp).  Is there 
something else that I need?
