So I'm not the only one having problems. . .
FreeBSD/i386 bootstrap loader, Revision 1.0
([EMAIL PROTECTED], Fri Nov 9 01:58:33 PST 2001)
name not found
Assert failed: (false), function ficlCompileSoftcore, file softcore.c,
I got the system running by:
booting up with a set of 'fixit' floppies
mounting the root drive
cd'ing into /boot,
mv loader loader.new
cp loader.old loader
