Dear Very Helpful and Informative FreeBSD List, I installed FreeBSD on Friday Night and tried very hard to get it all working. My initial X problem actually fixed itself (you can imagine my surprise), however, even with that, our computer is useless as a desktop (or anything else) without an internet connection. My hardware is unsupported and despite my best efforts, I decided it would be better to expedite the process and I installed Mepis Linux.
I would hardly describe it the way another newbie did one week ago. It was a good challenge. I'll wait until I'm a better administrator and there's more support for hardware I might have. The only really annoying thing was that I perpetually had trouble mounting my usb flash drive. I think this was a filesystem problem. Thanks for any help you've offered, Joel Joel J.
