Is this an stupid question?

I am trying to install FreeBSD 5.2. My problem is that after being
questioned about whether I really want to carry on with the installation, I
get a message saying "the root filesystem could not be created"

Also, I have three CD and DVD drives, and when questioned about which to
use, I haven't got the slightest idea. But, in any case, I have tried with
the three, and the result is the same.

My system is set as:

Primary channel: Main HD (160 Gig) as master, and a CD-RW as slave

Secondary channel: A 60 Gig HD as master and a DVD-ROM as slave.

All the above in a ULTRA ATA card. There is as well a master DVD+RW in the
primary channel of the motherboard.

Thanks for reading-
