Subject: problem with installation
Hi there,probably a common one, but I >couldn't find a word about it on freebsd.org.
I've run into a problem during (actually before) installation. It's
I boot from the CD (version is 5.0), but when it gets to >the "probing for
devices" screen, it hangs. I disconnected my internal Zip drive, but that
did >absolutely nothing. I'm really excited about using FreeBSD and I would

First of all, we need to know the hardware you are currently using, as it
seems like that's the source
of the problem. You're onto something with disconnecting your Zip drive, but
you should also try the elimination-method, disconnecting one device, try to
boot, disconnect another and try to boot, etc.

And hardware information is definitely needed, as the threads
I've seen re: this issue mainly centered on older BIOSes not
understanding newer CD boot sectors, or some such stuff....
