Walter:....did you boot with the cdrom and followed the instructions in the
quick install instructions to the leter or do you have prior
experience with other versions of BSD???

Walter:.... Open system with PI200Mhz intel chipset, 2940 scsi with seagate
2Gb and Maxtor1.2Gb, Matrox Millenium, USR 56K, 3Com
Ethernet, toshiba 24x CDRom (Bootable), .... 96Mb ram and can't think in
what else to tell you other than the machine boots to
the CDrom and I just follow the instructions until it ask where to install
from and when I select the cdrom it returns to the
same question install from... and the choices.....

Hey guys I do not mean to be a hard ass but just think for a minute, if you
install mandrake and solaris and they go in just fine or without hasels then
what are you going to think.... Well, I got to thank you all and hope that
we can crack this thing I rather support people like OpenBSD than Solaris
but thats just my personal thing lets kick this bug or whatever that it
might be and move on with bigger and better issues....
