I have problem installing NetBSD-1.4.2 on my Compaq Presario 
4504 with Pentium 200.

I was using NetBSD-1.4.2 release CD. It booted successfully 
the first time and came to a point to allow me to set the 
partition for NetBSD. I did not enter the correct partition 
information and when I realized that I tried to go back to 
previous screens to re-enter, but NetBSD did not allow me to 
do that. 

I had no choice but to reboot and I am never able to boot 
from NetBSD CD since then. Each time I boot from the CD, the 
only message I see on the screen is "Read Err" and the 
machine is dead. Does anybody know what this error message 

I tried the same CD on other machines, it boots. My Presario 
can also boot Compaq Restoration CD.

Could somebody help me?
