Installing 6.0-BETA5 on Ultra30: RED State Exception

I have given to FreeBSD 6.0-BETA5 a try on my 250MHz Ultra30.
Unfortunately there are problems with it just from the beginning.

The first problem I have encountered was the "Release name"
which is 6.0-BETA4. Because of this none of the distributions could be
found. After restarting and changing this in 6.0-BETA5 (in the Options
menu) the distributions could be found but after chunk 34 from bin I get a
RED State Exception.

  47834112 bytes read from base dist, chunk 34 of 41 @ 655.3 KBytes/sec.

A FreeBSD snapshot from 27.07.04 (some 5.2?) works perfectly.

What could case this? Any idea?
