Hi,
 
I am trying to install on an alphaserver 2001 5/300. But it will freeze
with an error all the time, Debian linux is running well (so the comp.
works, I hope).
 
I start to put in the freebsd 4.4 cd, booted from SRM (BOOT DKA600),
then pressed return (when the system asked for it befor the kernel
starts) and then got the following message:
 
unexpected machine check
mces=0x1
vector=0x670
param=0xfffffc000000606
pc=0xfffffc00000537270
ra=0xfffffc00000537268
curproc=0
 
The document
<http://www.de.freebsd.org/releases/4.4R/hardware-alpha.html>;
http://www.de.freebsd.org/releases/4.4R/hardware-alpha.html has a
section which I did not understand (and which might cause the above)
problems):
>    options    DEC_2100_A500
>    cpu EV4 #dependent on CPU model installed
>    cpu EV5 #dependent on CPU model installed
 
Is someone out there with some advice for me what to do next to get my
first freeBSD system to run?
 
Thanks in advance
