This is a guess, but it's possible that your Tecra doesn't support "Emulated El Torito" CD booting, which is what 4.x uses.

If it's not a production server, you could try 5.1 (or 5.2 BETA,) whose ISO images apparently use "Non-Emulated El Torito" booting. -Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
