I have no idea if it's a known problem. However, there was no way to tell from what you posted. It wasn't clear if the floppy install *would* work, it wasn't clear if the CD drive worked with production- quality releases of FreeBSD, and I don't use 5.0 myself yet, so I wasn't comfortable going into detail. You really need to take problems with 5.x to the -current mailing list before posting a PR. > -Stephen > > On Thu, 6 Feb 2003, Lowell Gilbert wrote: > > > Stephen Cravey <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> writes: > > > > > I'm getting an error when trying to boot any of the 5.0-RELEASE cd's > > > something like: > > > > > > CD Loader 1.01 > > > Building txxx boot loader arguments > > > Could not find primary volume descriptor > > > > > > > > > and then it dies there. txxx is illegible in my notes, but somehow I don't > > > think that is significant.
