in the middle of installing freebsd [6.1 b1] over an earlier
ubuntu trial during transfer from CD to hard drive, i began to
see "unable to transfer ... from acd0" error messages for first
the doc, manpages, dict, and base distributions. i switched the
install media to ftp and successfully installed the doc, manpages
and dict distributions (i think!) before again encountering the
"write failure on transfer" error for the base distribution.
i burned the install cds at a 16x speed and 'verified' them with
nero, if that makes any difference.
my archive searches with the errors above pasted in produced
conflicting or dated results. is there a way to easily narrow
down the list of culprits? any help greatly appreciated.
