I am trying to install freebsd 4.9 on my new dell 8400.

I don't see any conflicts in the config stage, but during the setup the install just hangs after <plip>.

The machine has an sata drive and by default the bios is to configure hyper threading on. I've tried changing various settings and in order to reinstall XP I had to change the bios drive setting to do raid/ata autodetect. Certainly turning off HT doesn't seem to get the freebsd install any further.

I managed to get various knoppix/freesbie versions to come up, but not easily and only the knoppix 3.2 seems to see the hard drive properly.
