For what it's worth I've been running 6.1-R AMD64 on a PE 1950 very successfully as a web/mysql/mail/dns server. If you have the broadcom or intel NICs you're going to want to use the drivers from 6-STABLE or 6.2-RC2. Other than that it's been relatively painless. -- Thanks, Josh Paetzel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
