Ok. I tried your build. The Mylex is being recognised. Disklabel is
writing information's onto the disks and the "partitions" (sorry, still
thinking in NT...) where successfully created. Then I choose "minimal"
and the installation starts. And now to the part, where I was nearly
started crying:

- the copy process gets slower and slower
- it seems like the machine freezes

when I opened the console "alt+f2" I saw this nice messages:

-> mlx0: I/O error - attempt to write beyond end of drive

I updated the Mylex bios to 2.7 (3.xx would work but I don't know by now
where to get this 2nd chip...) I went back to NT console and installed
it. It worked...
Restarted the FreeBSD installation. Same error.

Any ideas???

Thx, Thomas

For now it (the miniinst.iso; disc2.iso is still uploading) is as

I'm waiting for David's input on how to get it on ftp-master.
