Please give some more information about your
system, and the version of FreeBSD you are
trying to install:
1) Chip set (vendor and type)
2) Version of FreeBSD (2.1.x or 2.2.x)

You can build a kernel without PCI support
(remove the line "controller pci0" and all
the PCI specific drivers), and install it
under a non-default name, eg. /kernel.altos.
Move over the drive to your ALTOS 7000 and
enter /kernel.altos at the "Boot: " prompt.
The PCI probe really should work, if you
are using a recent version of FreeBSD. If
it doesn't, then I'll need some debug output
from a boot on your system, and will then
fix the PCI code ...
