I'm trying to install FreeBSD 5.0 on my Toshiba Portege 7010CT laptop (Pentium II, 300MHz, 160Meg RAM, 20G HDrive).
4.7 and 4.8 both installed fine, but I was unable to get X to install, and wanted some of the new features, so figured I'd try 5.0. No luck. No matter how I try it, I get the message "Unable to transfer the bin distribution from <media>". The other distributions (doc, etc.) transfer just fine. I've tried the following: - downloaded and burned CDs from ISO images (downloaded twice, burned twice to make sure not a media problem); also tried 5.1 with the same result. - connect via ftp server I've booted from floppy or from the previously-installed 4.7/4.8 FreeBSD. I'm beginning to wonder if there's some incompatibility that I don't know about. Any suggestions? I've just started trying to use FreeBSD.
