I followed these steps to install/configure:
HTML Code:
(for as far as possible; not everything was the same)
I ended up with FreeBSD supposedly installed, but after rebooting got this error:
FreeBSD/i386 boot
Default: 0:ad(0,a)/boot/kernel/kernel
No /boot/kernel/kernel
In the Disklabel Editor I choose to delete VAR (won't be using it on-line in the beginning) because it read: "Not enough free space to create a new partition in the slice."
Also during install I saw
error mounting /dev/acd0 on /dist:
Input/output error (5)
Anyway, since the subject-header is irrelevant now, I guess I'll leave this thread and do some searching first, retry to install, and if all fails come back in another thread.

Thanks for your help & suggestions so far!
edit: I retried, but this time took disc1.iso instead of the recommended bootonly.iso
Finally... I've really got FreeBSD on the machine (now still learn to work with it ;-))
