I'm attempting to install FreeBSD 4.2 on my computer and I'm running into
problems.  Basically, the system does not boot and displays the message "No
/kernel."  My system particulars are as follows:

1. Dual-boot system with Windows 2000 and FreeBSD
2. Boot manager is Boot Magic
3. Three hard disks and 1 -CD/RW installed as follows:
   Primary master (8.3GB Western Digital [Windows 2000])
   Primary slave (60GB Western Digital)
   Secondary master (40GB Maxtor [FreeBSD])
   Secondary slave (CD/RW drive)
4. Pentium III, 450 MHz Processor
5. 384MB RAM
6. Soundblaster PCI sound card
7. PCI 10/100 Base-T network card
8. PCI parallel port expander
9. U.S. Robotics ISA modem

The installation of FreeBSD completes just fine but that OS
simply won't boot (Windows 2000 boots just fine).  I've tried
the suggestions for similar problem that I found mentioned in
the manual and I also searched your web site but I've been unable
to solve the problem.  I'd really like to get this working so
I'd appreciate any help that you'd be willing to provide.

Best Regards,

Elliot Hanna
