Dear FreeBSD Aficionados,

I am trying to install FreeBSD in my notebook through an external USB
CD-ROM. While the installation manager runs fine, after choosing the
installation media it says it cannot mount /dev/acd0 (which refers to
the notebook's built-in broken cdrom).
What could I do?

As an alternative I tried installing through FTP. The problem is that
my network configuration has to be as such (with ip aliasing and some
static routes):
defaultrouter="192.168.1.1"
static_routes="beastie puffy"
route_beastie="-net 10.0.0.0/8 10.96.66.254"
route_puffy="-net 10.96.66.253/32 10.96.66.2"
hostname="payaso.costis.name"
ifconfig_rl0="inet 10.96.66.2  netmask 255.255.255.0"
ifconfig_rl0_alias0="inet 192.168.1.36  netmask 255.255.255.0"

... and the holographic emergency shell is somewhat hostile to running
ifconfig/route: (command: not found)

My DNS server is 10.96.66.1


Thank you very much in advance for any insights!...

Yours,

Constantine Tsardounis
