Free BSD Release 8.0 not recognizing CD/DVD and usb install media
I am trying to install Free BSD release 8.0 on my Dell XPS Studio laptop along with already existing Windows partition. (150GB for Win Vista, 30GB for win backup and 130 GB for Free BSD). To do trial I first installed it on Sun virtual Box in Windows where it installed without any complaints. However when I tried clean install it on the desired partition it refuses to recognize both my CD/DVD drive and usb disk during "Select installation media:" menu in sysinstall. Please do help me out as I need it to study for an course in upcoming semester.
Please do tell some other way to install it if CD/DVD and usb can't work.(internet is not a possibility as connection is too slow). How to use the existing file system or the dos partition option.
