FreeBSD 6.2 install CD causes immediate reboot

I was given a Dell Dimension m200a yesterday by someone
who recently upgraded. I think it was created around 1997.
odd: This PC runs Win95; but has 2 usb ports. Didn't
Win98 predate usb ports?
When I try to boot up with the FreeBSD 6.2 installation CD,
the system tries to boot from the CD; but then reboots before
anything messages from the CD appear on the monitor.
Is there something I can try, or should I just give up?
I have a hard time throwing functional hardware in the trash.
Maybe I'm struggling too much with my own mortality; but
that's a different discussion. ;-)
