Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

sorry if some of you find this as a lame question answered in some of
the FAQ's or manuals (i've gone through without finding
a solution, without luck..)

I have just received the the FreeBSD 2.1.5 distribution from Walnut
Creek CDROM, but I have major problems installing it. When asked what
media to install from, I choose CDROM as I probably should, but the
program tells me that it can't find any CDROM drive. I _have_ created a
bootdisk, and I have looked into the UserEdit, trying to put the
Creative-driver port to -1 (0xffffff?) Upon boot-time, it seems to
respond that it can't find the device, and I don't have any idea how to
proceed, and would like help on this...

Although it's irellevant (i think) i'll specify the system details on
this machine:

CPU: 486/33 (yuck!)
RAM: 20    HDD: 710MB
Operating system: Windows 95 (yuck!)
CD-ROM: Blaster-CD 6x PnP with ISA-controller (IDE)

I'll greatly appreciate any assistance you may offer, as this is
starting to get me crazy...
