Bonjour tous,

I can't start FreeBSD 2.2.6 on the PC.
It goest upto the "login: " line, and
it hangs without any error display.

Well, last time I launched, it worked perfectly.

On this machine, I have 

(1) Windows NT 4.0 SP3
(2) Windows 95
(3) FreeBSD 2.2.6

And, as the partitions, I have 3 partitions;

(1) C:  wcd0s1 (Windows 95 bootable / WinNT bootable)
        2.2 GB
(2) wcd0s2 (FreeBSD native): in here, I have 800 MB
(3) D:  wcd0s3  (Only data)
        1.2 GB

As it doesn't want me to boot from FreeBSD.
I tried to reinstall it. BUT...

FreeBSD 2.2.6 Partition doesn't accept 2 DOS partitions
in it.

Isn't it possible that because of this, FreeBSD didn't 
want to boot ? or others ?

If you have the same experience, please tell me...

For X, I made "exec kdm" in rc.local.

Cheers for your help.
