I have tried to install FreeBSD 6.1 (downloaded as an iso from
freebsd.org) onto the last 1.5Gb of a 120Gb disk, the rest is windows
XP, this appears to go normally except for the geometry I get the
message =93geometry of 238216/16/63 for ad0 is incorrect.  Using a more
likely geometry=94.  (Which turns out to be 14946/255/63).   When I
attempt to load FreeBSD  I get the error message =93Unable to load =
kernel=94
and it goes to the OK prompt.  In the bios it gives the geometry as
58853/16/255, however if I try to but this in once more I get the error
=93Geometry =85 incorrect.  Using a more likely geometry.=94
Any suggestions as to what I=92m doing wrong?
