 Cannot install 4.2 over FTP
     I am not sure whether or not this is a frequently discussed problem,
but I am finding it just impossible to install FreeBSD-4.2 on my Pentium
133.  I am attempting to install over FTP (using passive mode since I use an
IP Masquerading server as my gateway), and for some reason, the installation
program just decides to quit right in the middle of receiving the files
("Extracting bin into / directory," as it calls it).  As soon as it gets to
around 32% on the progress indicator, I get the following message:

panic: ffs_bikfree: freeing free frag

syncing disks... 102 100 64 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3
giving up on 1 buffers
Uptime: 19m35s
Automatic reboot in 15 seconds - press a key on the console to abort

     I've attempted to make myriad adjustments to my options configured in
the beginning of the installation, but for some reason, it just will not get
past this download process.  The average bandwith it gets while downloading
is around 20kB/s, so it is not stalling in the download either.  Also, I
just put in a new 10GB Western Digital hard drive in, and it still does the
same thing, so I am doubting it is a hardware problem of that nature.
     I have not installed FreeBSD before, but I do have a lot of experience
with Linux.  If someone could please give me a bit of advice as to what is
causing this problem, I would be very thankful.
