Cannot install PC-BSD using only the first CDs

Description

I have been unable to install PC-BSD 7.1.1 on a Virtual Box VM (running on top of a Pentium 4 2.4GHz with 2.5GB of RAM running Mandriva Linux Cooker ) either from the first CD or both the first and second CD. It keeps asking me for the next CD with only an "OK" button and if I don't give it this CD, then the installation needs to be aborted, and the installed partition is left at an unusable state. As far as I recall, no installation of any Linux distribution I tried ever required more than one essential CD, and could always finish with just one CD, including today, so I think PC-BSD should follow suit, and not require more than one CD for installation.

I realise that if you make your software more idiot-proof, then nature will come up with better idiots, but eventually you can deal with a large number of complaints by eliminating many common stumbling blocks:
