This means that for some reason, it could not locate your DVD drive 
during bootup. Under FreeBSD what device does your drive normally use? 
Right now it checks for /dev/acd0-2 and /dev/cd0-2. Does yours show up 
as some other name? You may also wish to check the MD5 on your ISO, and 
make sure that /uzip/usr.uzip appears on the disk.
