My bad. the cd-rom is located:
acd0: CDROM <Hitachi CDR-77307 at atal-master using P102

I need to boot from the CD-ROM in order to do a fresh install. I am seeking 
instructions as to how. It may have been improperly configured. I am getting 
messages on boot up that it didn't properly dismount.

When I attempt to access it via /stand/sysinstall I get a message that the 
drive is busy. Then when it tries to go through on subsequent attempts to 
access the CD-ROM, I get routed to the login prompt with a message that 
fragments were dumped.
