I have installed FreeBSD 5.4 (from CD) onto a ThinkPad A21.  I also have
Win2Kpro on this laptop.  FreeBSD is installed at about the 7G mark on the

I had 4.3 installed previously, and thought I would just start over.  Howver,
when the laptop boots, I get the f1 DOS f2 Freebsd prompt, but I can't boot
FreeBSD.  Win2K boots just fine.

I tried a number of things:
1) re-installing
2) fixmbf (win2K utility to restore the mbr)

With no success.  Any words of wisdom would be welcome.
