installation failed

Sorry for my english, 
I try to install PCBSD 7 on my PC, but it reboot on at 58-60% of copying of files, so I cannot read any log to know
what it's appened. 
My PC is HP,Intel Core Duo, motherboard ASUS, GPU Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS, two HD SATA 2. 
There are installed Gentoo and Archlinux also, without any problem; I tried to install FreeBSD 7.1 successfully.
There is some solution?
Thanks in advance.

How much RAM is in the system, and how big of a partition are you 
installing it to? If you right-click on the background during the 
install, you can bring up "xterm" and run tail -f /var/log/messages to 
see any kernel errors, maybe a read error from disk? Was the MD5 of the 
ISO ok?

Thanks for your answer,
the system has 3 GB of RAM, I tried to install PCBSD in a primary partition of the second sata HD, /dev/sdb4 or /dev/ad1s4.
I'll check the MD5 and try to bring up some information as you seggested.
Thank you again.

audio buffering

Trying to listen to Cartalk audio, which is in realplayer format.

http://www.cartalk.com/Radio/Show/show.smil

I can initiate a stream and it works fine except it only plays a small 
portion (buffer) and then jumps on to the next section or episode of 
audio. 10 episodes.  It seems like it is buffering the stream but it 
doesn't refresh.  Which buffer am I looking for?
Same issue with kaffiene and the Amorak player.
pcbsd 1.5.1

Thanks,
Aaron

Grub can't find PC-BSD's partition

I installed PC-BSD on a spare harddrive. I didn't opt for a bootloader
since I have multiple OS'es installed (Gentoo, Debian etc.). Therefor I
use GRUB to boot PC-BSD.

Before I installed PC-BSD I had FreeBSD installed on the same partition
which booted fine. I replaced FreeBSD with PC-BSD and unfortunately GRUB
can't find it's partition. Anyone has idea how I can fix this? Here's
some relevant information:

My GRUB entry:
> title  FreeBSD 7.0
> root   (hd2,a)
> kernel /boot/loader

The disk where PC-BSD is installed:
> Disk /dev/sdi: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
> 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders

Re: Grub can't find PC-BSD's partition

Thanks for the help. I solved this by changing to last line of my grub
entry from 'kernel /boot/loader' to 'chainloader +1'
