Installation problems

Please note I am trying to install FreeBSD 5.1 onto a blank system.  The 
system is a Soltek Cubic system with an Athlon 2600+, 512MB DDR RAM, DVD 
drive and CD-R/W as well as an 80GB HDD and a 40GB one.

I have followed the instructions in the book I bought (FreeBSD 
Unleashed) to the letter but still cannot complete a full installation.  
I get no error messages at all but still find the installation does not 
complete as I cannot get it to install a boot record so I have not been 
able to get it to boot from the HDD.  What is wrong?  I have tried with 
both the CD from the book and also an image I downloaded from the net.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.
