First of all, are you able to try a supported / non-dev version
of FreeBSD (I'd strongly suggest 6.1-RELEASE)?
If not, where does it get to before freezing? Last message on
the screen? You've tried leaving it there for more than 30
seconds (my (rather old) CD drive takes half a minute or so
to be probed)?
By the way, you might wanna check your caps lock / read up
on netiquette (see RFC 1855) :-)
