Hi, Manoliis:

I took your advice. I copied the burned iso file into a FreeBSD directory and ran md5 and the check digits did not match. I then copied my downloaded iso image from Win98 into FreeBSD and ran md5 and the digits did match. So there was nothing wrong with the iso of disc1 that I downloaded from the web site into Win98. It must have been the burning of the file in Win98 with Nero Express that was the problem.

So I burned another copy of the iso in FreeBSd with burncd using:
  burncd -f /dev/acd1 6.2-RELEASE-i386.iso fixate
and it booted just fine.

Thanks for all of your suggestions and advice. Now I will be spending the better part of the weekend doing the installation of 6.2. Wish me luck.

Have a great day,

Glad I could be of help! Make sure to get some pizza and beer for your install party :) I believe you will find 6.2 to be an excellent release, as most of us on this list do.

Take care,
