I've gotten 3 copies of FreeBSD 5.3 (I don't know if they are
and I'm not really interested). When booting each of them I get
same messages, which I will list here:
Verifying DMI Pool Data .........
Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM:
CD Loader 1.2
Building the boot loader arguments
Relocating the loader and the BTX
I waited over 8 minutes for anything else after this and got nothing.
The hard-disk access-light was on all this time.
I wanted to create slices and load FreeBSD 5.3 onto the hard disk,
which (as I recall) has to be done from the booting of the CD-ROM . Are
CD-ROMs defective? Am I missing something? How do I get to make new
and load FreeBSD 5.3 ?
