I'm writing you today because for about a week now I'm trying to install
FreeBSD on my system.I am installing it from a recent cd-rom media edition
2.2.2 release.Ok lets start off with the problem.When I boot from only my
cd-rom to enter the installation stage everything starts out fine.It boots
up successfully my kernel and bringing me to the next step that is the
kernel configuration table.From there I have 3 choices to make so I always
chose the visual mode for kernel entry modifications.Next I arrive at
another screen that is my userconfig table and theres my big problem.At the
top of the screen it tells me that I have 23 conflicts which means that my
devices are conflicting with one another.Now my only choice I have in order
to fix the problem is to reconfigure every device to avoid conflicts.So
what I did was to disable any drivers in the active range of the list that
wasn't present in my system and altering the drivers parameters in the
editor table.After I pressed the q key to save the parameters and
exit.After I was presented with a type of menu describing the type of
installation I wanted.I chose the novice installation as recommended not to
lose important things during setup.Now I have a dialog box telling me that
my system has been installed with errors and I should go trough the
debugging process of VTY1 which I don't have a clue of what that means.Then
I rebooted my system for startup.I also need to mention that at some point
during the installation I encountered 2 panic incidents that forced my
system to shutdown.The 2 panic strings that were caught was a signal 10 and
11.I hope I gave you all the details needed to resolve the problem and if
you need more details or info please feel free to let me know.Thank you for
your time and understanding.

Best Regards.
Mark
