I just purchased one of these for our company as our mail server. I have ran
freebsd on boxes (mail server, webserver, proxy server, ftp, etc) but this
is the first actual "server" box. Trying to install this on the box with
the default geometry makes me receive the "Write failure on transfer (wrote
-1 bytes of 1425408 bytes)" error. Alt-f2 is showing
/stand/cpio: premature end of file. I have downloaded the image twice and
burned twice yet receive the same error. Is it not able to write because
when using the default geometry it cannot format? If anyone can point me in
the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
