Re the FreeBSD Installer-- I think that more specifically, I would like and lots of users in the *nix community probably would not mind, if sysinstall could handle installing to a partially used HDD. Can sysinstall do that? *naive looks*
I have heard o' wondrous a' tale about (hmmmm which was it Ubuntu or Xandros/theWindowsyLinux?) Linux installers that can shrink unused space of a current partition, and then go along its merry way and install to the other part of a HDD. So I guess my [I want what HE HAS..] question is - if I have Linux Fedora Core on my HDD which is using one huge single partition, what do I do so that I can install FreeBSD to the rest of the disk?? I miss FreeBSD.

Also, an interesting thing is that sysinstall required (at least in my case) a clean filesystem / partition tables every time I tried to install. Whenever I installed with a partially or complete filesystem, sysinstall would die every single time when installing when fetching / extracting sources. - -Garrett -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- <<Garrett, sorry I broke the pgp sig! -Peter>> .. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
