Unable to load kernel

I have tried to install FreeBSD 6.1 (downloaded as an iso from
freebsd.org) onto the last 1.5Gb of a 120Gb disk, the rest is windows
XP, this appears to go normally except for the geometry I get the
message “geometry of 238216/16/63 for ad0 is incorrect. Using a more
likely geometry”. (Which turns out to be 14946/255/63). When I
attempt to load FreeBSD I get the error message “Unable to load kernel”
and it goes to the OK prompt. In the bios it gives the geometry as
58853/16/255, however if I try to but this in once more I get the error
“Geometry … incorrect. Using a more likely geometry.”
Any suggestions as to what I’m doing wrong?
