This is quite amusing. May we also pay you for using FreeBSD? ;^)

What does the CD-ROM's jumper have to do with installing an OS? If it
worked with other OS's, then it should be deemed workable, and let the
jumper alone.

If you really care to get meaningful responses, why don't you post
what exactly happens when you are trying to install from CD-ROM?

I'll try not to forget to let you know when the entire FreeBSD core
team has finished fixing installation problem with symptoms "moving
jumper on CD-ROM between Master and Slave doesn't help". ;^)

Happy new year!
