Hi all,
    I am trying to install the FreeBSD 4.8 Release on a i386 m/c.
I have burnt the iso images onto a CD.

My problem
The m/c boots uncompressing the kernel and takes me thru the
menu. While choosing the installation Media I get the message
"No CD/DVD devices found"

while searching on the web I found one mail which mentioned problems
with FreeBSD and ATA, ATAPI.
The workaround provided was where in has to
set hw.ata.ata_dma="1"
set hw.ata.atapi_dma="1"

but  still I could not choose the CD as the installation media?

Need help in getting around this problem
