Oh, yes, one more thought-- your specific application, i.e. a large

installing the 64-bit version of FreeBSD instead of the normal 32-bit
I've heard this idea a few times in answer to my question. Is there a

suspect that means I can't follow that suggestion...
Thanks again for all your help!
I figured it out - this is an older Xeon processor apparently - 32 bit.
Sorry for the cluelessness - I'm a bit behind the times when it comes to
