I managed to get access to FreeBSD 5.0 Official release and got the same 
error message. this still occurred after doing a firmware update on the 
dvd drive.
I managed to borrow a Pioneer DVD-105 slotload drive and the install was 
ok, but i am at a loss to why it is unable to recognise my pioneer 
dvd-120 drive.

Thanks Andrew
