Excellent! Never had that one answered. I've gone down the typical road of being an MS booster ("It doesn't take 10 hours to set up and configure") to experiencing glee when I find yet another way FBSD kicks the crap out of MS. Why? Because I've grown up, and learned that 2 hours time spent *reading* and configuring is way better than 2 days time spent when the system crashes in the middle of the workweek - bottom line, BSD is cheaper before, during, and after installation. Probably by a factor of 10 for me over the last 10 years. As I write this, I'm on a MS laptop that has degraded to the point where any disk acess takes 10 seconds before the display updates (but not from the shell - so not a defrag issue, just a screwed registry or something). I used to reinstall my entire MS server every 6 months, on average...

Two retractions in one hour would seem to demonstrate a cranial short-circuit this morning. Steve, it's not in the FAQ. Here's a link to a brief mailist discussion: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-chat/2003-July/000932.html Assuming you have Ghostscript installed (which may be a big IF), you might be able to take a gander at the document mentioned with something like: groff /usr/share/doc/smm/05.fastfs/* ~/ffs.ps ps2pdf ~/ffs.ps acroread ~/ffs.pdf But there's probably a better way --- I'm certainly "one offing" today.
