What kind of problems are you having with FreeBSD?  There was a 
non-specific mention of errors regarding your hard drive, but 
said everything was working ok.

Whoa...  I installed Mandrake 9 when it released and it did the 
same thing.  I thought my cd burner had fried.  When I got 
another one, it worked fine for both.  

I kept the "fried" one for a while and stuck it in another box I 
was putting together (just to make sure it was fried before 
throwing it away) and there was nothing wrong with it.

Glad to see it wasn't just in my head.  lol

(I like the drake, though...  It's what I usually recommend for 
people who are wanting to try something other than windows and 
don't have the knowledge (desire to learn) necessary to build up 
a system of their own).
