hello FreeBSD,

I have tried several versions of FreeBSD and have not been able to get any
of them to run on my system.
Linux and M$ runs fines - I hate M$
But every BSD either hangs on splash screen or - it enters a continuous
splash screen- reboot loop.
I have tried every option I can find to no reward.
I get no error messages
I have tried 3 different hard drives thinking it might be a messed MBR but
even a fresh drive makes no difference
What is missing?
please help

my system is running an AMD Duron at 1.3 MHz with 380megs ram
