Hello, I have a machine with the following configuration : 1. AMD Athlon XP 1.8GHz. 2. 512 Mb DDR RAM. 3. Samsung CD/RW Drive 4. 2 HDDs - IBM(80G) + Samsung(40G). 5. ASUS A7N8X-X motherboard. 6. NVidia GEForce MX-440(64Megs dedicated DDR) Display card. 7. DLing DFE538-TX 10/100 Mbps, ethernet card on PCI.
I burned 2 CDs from the ISOs I have downloaded, from the ftp://ftp.freebsd.org site. I have downloaded version 5.1 of the FreeBSD release. During install, I get the following error : Mounting root from ufs:/dev/md0, after which the system hangs, no Keyboard access, nothing. I have to do a power down and start up again. All devices are detected fine, HDDs, CD/RW, Display adapters, KBD, etc. Am I doing something wrong ? Or is the 5.1 release unsupported for my motherboard ? Do I need to(groan) download another release ? Is 4.9/4.8 a stable release ? Or is there something else I'm missing out on ? Please advise. thanks in advance, Kumar __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
