  I am a student at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University doing a project 
that requires me to install FreeBSD on a PC that is not networked.  I 
have gone through the installation process and am required to compile a 
program using the cc or gcc command.  When I do this it gives me the 
warning ld: a.out permission denied.  If I do this from root it does 
create the a.out file but it is not executable.  I really need help on 
this situation as I am required to present this to my instructor by 
tomorrow evening.  I did install the manpages and installation was 
completed to 100% but was then given the warning that there was a Write 
Failure, the disks were reformatted and done again but still the same 
warning was given.  I would also like to know how I may install some of 
the other files such as games, info,....etc, without having the 
installation menu.  Your promptness and help will greatly be appreciated 
as I only have a limited time to fix this problem.  One note about the 
a.out file, I did try to change the mode to 700 to make it executable but 
it was not recognized.

Thank You,

Shetal Lala
