I have a litle probleme while i try to install freebsd 2.1 :

As a matter of fact I can't install it from my atapi cdrom(the cdrom 
drive is not recognised).
So i try to install if from a dos partition.

But after the creation of my freebsd partitions & labels, the choice of 
my distribution, when the install programm try to load the root 
distritubion it failed :

"Failed to load the ROOT distribution. Please correct this problem and 
try again."

Some more informations :

My Dos partion contain :

c:\FreeBsd\floppies where the root.flp is located ( and other files )
c:\FreeBsd contains also all the dists directories and files ...

Won't you have aby idea how i can handle this ????

( I have also try to install it directly from floppie disks, but near 
the last one the installer tells me : "write error :write -1 of 10240 
bytes" or something like that .)

Thank you for the attention you paid to me, and I am looking forward 
having news of you soon ....
