BTX halt on laptop

I am trying to install FreeBSD 6 on a Toshiba Sat. Pro 445CDX laptop
with no floppy drive. This laptop has a pentium processor and 16MB of
ram. When I boot to the installation cd, I get the register dump and
BTX halted message, and the screen then goes blank but the power stays
on. I have disabled as much as possible in the BIOS, including EIDE,
but nothing changes.

Is there any way to get BSD to install without using the BTX loader on the CD?
