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