write failure on transfer during install


I want to place FreeBSD 4.8 after XP and Slackware 9. When I went through the install got the error :

write failure on transfer!
(wrote 1 bytes of 240640 bytes)

and other write failed file system filled messages. I've even tried this with the default slice setup BSD gives and got the same result. Does anyone know what is wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

FDISK run

To anyone that found they had this problem, it came from running FDISK while the Linux was running with its filesystems mounted. I had to just run the FDISK on the distro disk and this fixed the problem.
