This is a request for help made after extensive efforts to install
freebsd on  
my computer, and only after having tried almost everything, i was
wondering 
if you have any suggestions.
        Firstly, may I say what my system is., below:

maxtor 6Y120LO hardrive
sis 5513 chipset
sis 5513 ide controller
hda maxtor 6y120l0 ata disk drive
bus pci
sis648  ATA  133 controller
 I also get the message in the boot messages, (not 100% native, will
probe 
later) if this is of any moment
        May I say I am using Suse linux as my main operating system and hope to
multi 
boot from a choice of systems, so far I have had no problem, Debian
installed 
superbly as well.
        I have Windows xp on the first partition, the unices behind it, (I am
no fan 
of wondows! )
        May o also say that i have used the blochs emulator to try to debug the
installation and sysinstall comes on screen perfectly but then I get the
nessage 'can't recognbise the disk'
this is in keeping with when i use ordinary booting, the software just
hangs, trying to identify the hard drive.
        I don't know if any of this will help solve the problem, I have
experimented 
with several parameters, using thre kernal configurator, and wonder if
the 
disk controller I am using is compatable with freebsd.
        Any help with this would be greatley appreciated.
        p.s.
                I sent this message before but have since changed ISP, therefore have
sent it again

        Many thanks for your trouble,

                Nick
