A friend of mine is trying to use PC-BSD 1.4 on his computer. He was using
PCLinuxOS before. Installation of PC-BSD 1.4 went fine but when you boot
the computer using PC-BSD, you see the "Loading" screen for a second and
the computer restarts, then it boots and you see the "Loading" screen
again for a second and it restarts, etc...In a loop. He doesn't have time
to hit "Enter" to see the error messages. Here's the list of hardware:

 - LG CRT 561N monitor
 - PS/2 mouse and keyboard
 - PC-Chips M810 motherboard
 - AMD Duron 1300+ Socket 462 CPU
 - 20GB Seagate HDD
 - 512MB Dimm PC-133Mhz RAM
 - DVD-RW LG 54N drive

Any idea?
