 I have been unable to install PC-BSD 7.1.1 on a Virtual Box VM (running on
 top of a Pentium 4 2.4GHz with 2.5GB of RAM running Mandriva Linux Cooker
 ) either from the first CD or both the first and second CD. It keeps
 asking me for the next CD with only an "OK" button and if I don't give it
 this CD, then the installation needs to be aborted, and the installed
 partition is left at an unusable state. As far as I recall, no
 installation of any Linux distribution I tried ever required more than one
 essential CD, and could always finish with just one CD, including today,
 so I think PC-BSD should follow suit, and not require more than one CD for
 installation.

 I realise that if you make your software more idiot-proof, then nature
 will come up with better idiots, but eventually you can deal with a large
 number of complaints by eliminating many common stumbling blocks:
