When I boot from the CDROM I get as far as choosing a terminal type to run sysinstall with. All the terminals suffer the following
Garbled out put: Lots of peculiar characters which aren't present in the manual screenshots
Arrow Keys not working: I can't move up and down the menus.
Screen Refresh (xterm). When I select a particular menu option, the menu overlays the old one without deleting it. Everything gets confused and unreadable.
I've seen this mentioned elsewhere at bsdforums.org but no fix is suggested.
Reboot, rinse repeat
