I am unable to install FreeBSD on a PC that has 4GB disk space.
I am trying to install from a CD that I bought sometime back.
In the installation's Choose Distributions menu, I choose to install
X-Developer and X-Kern-Developer distributions.
I get the following error message during the installation:
"Write failure on transfer! (wrote -1 bytes of 240640 bytes)
         [ Press enter to  continue ] "
On pressing enter, I get the following message:
    "User Confirmation Requested
Unable to transfer the scontrib distribution from acd0c.
Do you want to try to retrieve it again?"
Is this due to lack of disk space (4GB) or bad sectors in the hard disk?
However, through a search on the internet I found that someone else also has gotten 
into the same problem described above [unfortunately it is in Japanese and I cant make 
a word out of it!]

Here is the output of uname -a from interactive shell:
FreeBSD 4.3-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.3-RELEASE #1: Sat Apr 21 11:15:36 GMT 2001 [EMAIL
