Subject:   Installation woes with 6.2 release

I've got a machine with 2GB of RAM, onto which I can install Windows
XP with no issues.

However, FreeBSD 6.2 Release is giving me fits on this machine. If any
of you have insight, I'd surely appreciate you sharing

The motherboard is an Intel D645 GEBV2. I've tried a couple of
different disk arrangements, with no success.

I've installed an IDE WD 180GB drive, which the motherboard BIOS
detects just fine. When I boot from disk 1 for the FreeBSD install, it
detects no hard drive.

I've put in an Addonics ADSA2 PCI SATA card, which sports the SiL
1352A chipset, but the install blows up when installing to a 74GB
Seagate drive - the kernel panics and it reboots while copying files
to disk.

Has anyone run into these problems? Google hasn't been particularly my
friend on this one.

I've tried reading the install docs on the CD, with no particular
luck, but I could be missing something.

Many Thanks,
