Hi All

I'm pretty new to Linux but am trying to run FreeBSD on an old IBM PC and get the following message, any ideas? Thanks!

ERROR: When running the /sbin/kldload vpd
vpd0: vpd checksum failed. BIOS update may be required.
vpd0: <Vital Product Data Area> at i0 mem 0xffa00-0xffa42 on Motherboard

Have you already installed BSD or are you in the install process?
