Hi, I'm an italian user.

Yesterday I've tried to install FreeBSD in an old and empty 486.
I've downloaded the floppies and I've made the images
kern.flp e mfsroot.flp .

I've switched-on the pc with kern.flp floppy inside.... at a point the computer has asked to insert mfsroot.....

After a few minutes I've seen on the screen:

FreeBSD/i386 BOOT

Default: 0:fd(0,a)/boot/loader

e poi

FreeBSD/i386 BOOT

Default: 0:fd(0,a)/kernel
No kernel

What I have to do to continue?
I've an HD and a a CD-Rom reader....
BOOT see the units as
disk0 --> floppy
disk1 --> hard disk

I've read that the relationship between BIOS and FreeBSD about the units is different.
I need to know how I can continue the installation and what is the function of the 
boot.flp of 2,8 Mb and finally, what I need apart the floppies

Thanks a lot

No expert here, but I've received similar errors, and trashing that floppy in favor of another (new) one usually helped. YMMV, of course...
