Hello Mike,
Did u recompile the kernel? If yes then can u just include the kernel config
file? Also did u include any non standard flags in /etc/make.conf?

many minutes.  There is no ZIP or JAZZ drive; just an IDE disk and
an LG CD-RW drive.

This machine installs and runs FreeBSD 4.7 with no problems, and the CD
for 5.1 has been used successfully on other machines.  Any clues, please?

You don't provide much information here -- particularly for an "early
adopters only" version of the OS.

Does this still occur with 5.2?
Did the suggestions in the 5.1-RELEASE errata help?  Or even change
anything at all?

I am not sure what else there is to post.  The machine gets to the point
it says something like "Probing devices - this may take a while", and then
nothing else happens.  I read the 5.1 errata, and tried switching from APIC
to PIC, and disabling the on-board sound card, but this made no difference.

Thanks for the reply.

Here is the dmesg output, using 4.7:

For 5.1, I can't begin to do a kernel compile, as the installation goes nowhere. The
dmesg shown is for 4.7, and was included to give information about the machine,
not the version of the OS that is giving problems. For 4.7, I do have a custom
kernel, in which I eliminated INET6 and faith1, and added pcm. I can post the
config file if it is any use; I did not touch make.conf.
