Installation from Floppies - FreeBSD

Hi I am trying to install 5.3 from floppies/network and I boot from the the three discs (boot, kern1 and kern2). At the end of this I get the FreeBSD 5 boot screen (about 8 options and the character drawing of a daemon). Taking the default option 1 just starts the boot from floppies process again - how do I get past this screen to start the network setup and install? Many thanks, Nick...

    Default Installation from Floppies

    Hi

    I am trying to install 5.3 from floppies/network and I boot from the the
    three discs (boot, kern1 and kern2). At the end of this I get the
    FreeBSD 5 boot screen (about 8 options and the character drawing of a
    daemon). Taking the default option 1 just starts the boot from floppies
    process again - how do I get past this screen to start the network setup
    and install?

    Many thanks,

    Nick

    Hello, just curious, how much memory do you have?
    It is not possible to install 5.3 on a 16 MB machine.

    Thanks.

    If you can add up to 24 MB it should work fine.
    You can see the problem report PR docs/77304 I submitted. You can see
    there good explanations of the reasons of the problem, by expert people.

    Good luck.
    Ramiro.
