    I'm new in Linux also ... please guide me step by step


  • First off, as has been said many times before, pfSense is based on FreeBSD, not Linux.

    What version of pfSense are you trying to install? What hardware are you installing onto? Is the only problem that your drive isn't ad0? If not exactly what is the problem?
