I have tried unsuccessfully to install FreeBSD 5.2.1 from downloaded isos.

I have the i386 isos, but the first machine I tried was an Asus SK8N 
motherboard with Amd Opteron and 2Gb ram. The various hardware is shown as 
supported on the Hardware list; notably the Promise SATA150 TX2 disk 

Although this is an Amd64, I assume the 386 version should still install OK?

Anyhow, I booted from cd disk 1, went through the various questions, auto 
partitioned and it began "Extracting ... into / directory". This went well 
for a few minutes, lots of disk activity, then
        Panic - page fault
        CPUID 0

and was informed that the machine would reboot after 15seconds.

I tried again, this time booting without ACPI, with the same results.

Any suggestions?
