Hi all,

This is my very first post in this list, so I beg for your patience :)

I'm trying to install FreeBSD 6.1 on an IBM Netfinity 5000. I have the
two CD's set.
The machine uses a IDE DVD drive, and 5 SCSI disks.

I boot the machine and the CD starts to boot. I select the FreeBSD
normal booting. Everything seems to be fine. I can see the messages
about the detected devices (BIOS CDROM is cd0 and so on...)

I start the installation, The disks are detected, I set up my
partitions and then I select the CD/DVD media installation... and then
I get a No CD/DVD drive is present.

The drive is working in terms of hardware (I can run several live CD
linux distros for example) and then access the CD as usual. How is it
possible that after booting with FreeBSD the sysinstall (?) program
doesn't detect the cd?

Thanks in advance
