If it was easy to do right then there wouldn't be any good reason for your boss not to hire the kid behind the counter at MacWhopperDoodle with a $0.50/hr raise to give your job to him. I agree with others. Ask what you want the hardware to do. Make selections then research as to whether your selections work well with FreeBSD. Don't fill a computer room on guesswork and reading, buy samples and test. Of particualar areas to pay attention: Video controllers. Look for X.org support. Disk controllers. Hardware RAID and the latest SATA chipsets may be an issue. Network interfaces. Most seem to work. Motherboard & CPU. FreeBSD seems to run on most any x86 but if you expect on board power management and health status you'll have to do some research. -- David Kelly N4HHE, [EMAIL PROTECTED] ======================================================================== Whom computers would destroy, they must first drive mad. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
