That CD-ROM should not be the ones found now , but Sound-Blaster CD-ROM
which is different from
the present day CD-ROM . Sound-Blaster CD-ROM should be attached to
Sound-Blaster card , not to
IDE port .


Regular CD-ROM ( attached to IDE port ) started by later versions of
FreeBSD .


Thank you very much .
