I am trying to install on an old PC. I was attempting to use the DSL
install approach. I have DSL working, downloaded the 1.11 generic image.
I then used the gunzip fed to dd. There were no errors and running fdisk
-l showed a FreeBSD paritition on /dev/hda4.
Upon reboot I just get a "read error". I have tried downloading from
several sources and downloaded using both web browsers and wget from
command line. Does anyone have any idea what I am missing here? Is there
another step that needs to be made to get it to boot properly? Why does
dd create a /dev/hda4?
Thanks for any help.
