Hi ,

I m trying to install FreeBSD 4.9 on a Compaq Deskpro EP series PIII600 with 256Mb RAM 12Gb HDD .....
This is the message that I got : "Unable to make new root filesystem on /dev/ad0s1a! Command returned status 36".
I tried to change in BIOS from UDMA to PIO-0 PIO-4 EDMA but without luck.
Can anybody tell me what can I do to install FreeBSD on this machine ?
