Hi,
I have burned 3 iso images on CDs:
FreeBSB 6.1 disk1
FreeBSB 6.1 disk2
FreeBSB 6.1 Boot
All of them i386
I have Compaq workstation that is currently running Windows2000
Problem:
Desktop would not boot with FreeBSB 6.1Boot. I have tried FreeBSBDisk1 - same result. What am I doing wrong. Please HELP!
The boot order in BIOS -  CD Rom first
I am trying to get familiar with UNIX OS
Thanks

The Boot disc is mainly for testing and repairs. You will want to boot with disc 1 to actually install FreeBSD. But they don't boot for you...

Did you "Create CD from ISO image" or "Burn from image" as some CD writing software calls it? A .iso file represents an entire CD file system, so if you simply copied the .iso files to the CDs like you would any other files, then that is what is wrong. Search for "ISO" in the Help for your CD burning software.

If you correctly created CDs from the ISO images by burning their images rather than copying files, but you still cannot boot, test booting with other bootable CDs like the Windows disc that came with your PC. Make sure that your PC really can boot from CD.

If your PC can boot from CD, but not from correctly burned FreeBSD CDs, write to this email list a description of exactly what does happen when you try.
