There's likely more involved than is immediately apparent, but my take on it is that, out of a 4-CD set, I'd be using only a small portion of the first -- and none of the others -- if I backed out to what sounds like a minimal install and then built everything from online Ports. I was planning to install a STABLE release and stay with it, as mentioned on http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/version-guide/decision-points.html rather than get on the cvsup treadmill. ... > I would also like to point out that when you ask for help on > questions@ and someone asks you a question, if you have the > information it should be given, even if it was already posted on > another list.

My intent was to avoid cluttering the questions@ archives with a rather large post that would add very little value, being a duplicate of one that is already in another list's archives: http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/mid.cgi?10609020201.AA11586 Sorry if this was not clear. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
