James, you missed the point. If you have an Intel MAC it came
with MacOS X (tiger) and that is basically the same operating
system as FreeBSD. Meaning, what are you trying to gain? If
anything, your worse off with FreeBSD since MacOS X comes with
a gorgeous user interface that FreeBSD does not have.
I can understand the desire. OS X does have a polished and beautiful
desktop environment, but it is not FreeBSD. If money were no object
for me, I would want a Macbook Pro with a triple boot of OS X, Win XP
Back to the original topic: James, I'm curious that you had any
results booting with any BSD or Linux. The Intel Macs have no BIOS,
I have read of hacks that got Linux (and Windows before Apple offered
it) to work, but it didn't seem straight forward based on the
accounts I read.

I'm not joking. This is a FreeBSD mailing list isn't it?
