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?

If you switch to the interactive shell and issue "df -h", it will tell you how much space it used.

I've only seen this particular error when there was a hardware problem,
however.  I may be remembering wrong, but I seem to remember a cheap CD-ROM
plugged into the same chain as the HDD causing this.
