Hi.

I'm attempting to install FreeBSD for the first time (following the
directions on the web page), and I ran into a glitch that I can't 
seem to work around.

Here's what happens when it dies:

.
.
.
a whole bunch of kernel boot messages
.
.
.
changing root device to fd0c
panic: double fault


I tried the stock kernel configuration, and I tried a cut down
one which only had the stuff I needed - and the same thing
happens each time.  I even tried a different floppy, just
in case the first one had errors - no luck.

What is likely to cause this error?  Trouble reading the floppy
drive?  What should I do next?

Cheers,

 - Jim
