Can't install freebsd/pcbsd

Hi all,

I'm trying to install freebsd on a notebook for quite some time. It is an
Acer Aspire 9302AWMSi with a
AMD Turion 64 Mobile CPU.
I tried freebsd 8.2, pcbsd 8.2 and pcbsd 9.0 .

Unfortunately the installation routine gets trapped in some kind of endless
loop. Version 8.2 starts up and restarts again as soon the kernel gets
loaded. With version 9.0 I come to a menu and when I select any of the
choices, the computer restarts again. Any advice what I could do? Or is it
simply impossible to install freebsd on this kind of notebook?
