Please try to avoid top-posting, as it counts as "bad style" on
this maining list; thank you.

If the message

	error {0-01}

is displayed as soon as the PC tries to boot from the FreeBSD
CD, this may indicate two reasons: The first reason is a problem
of the PC itself (e. g. BIOS, defective drive) which I will keep
in background for now, as I assume that your PC and CD drive are
okay. Second reson is a defective CD, either by media, or by logic.
Have you made sure that the CD is bootable, e. g. checked with
a second PC or laptop (just booting)? Did you correctly record
the ISO file to the CD?

Again, make sure you did as explained in the handbook:

For example, can you mount the CD on a different system, and does
it show the obvious files and structures? Does a different system
boot from this CD?
