as the subject had shown. i cant install freebsd even though i tried:

1) 16bit fat
2) 32bit fat
3) c:\freebsd to put all the directories of the DIST (for eg; bin.aa will be
in c:\freebsd\bin\bin.aa)
4) d:\freebsd , ditto all the way.
5) i tried to get bin into the system thru diskettes but had some problems
with the disks halfway thru the install which already took ages(so i was
pissed and threw them away , well... sort of)

could it be a software bug ?

tech specs of system
celeron 300a(o/c to 450mhz, i'm sure o/c-ing has NOTHING to do with the
128sdram(shows at 64mb on the bootdisk[kern.flp] bootup screen)
abit bh6 motherboard
IBM 10.1gig 5400 rpm hdd.
asus 34x cdrom
1.44mb fdd

please help, thanks.
