Hi Jack, I think it was Alexandre who was interested in a particular host in the UK and was debating bringing his business to a company who let him know outright that they do not support FreeBSD. Thanks though!

I'm interested in this specific company because the boxes are hosted in France and cprm.net (A big telco in Portugal) is an excelent carrier for France and UK. I have less than 50ms roundtrip time for this network. Also for 99eur/month you get a dual opteron w/ 2x160GB SATA2 disks, 1GB DDRII, linked to a 100mbps network (shared but burstable) with no traffic limit. But the guy who called me to help me with my questions doesn't understand much of anything and he tought Freebsd was a linux distro plus he refuses to either install freebsd on the machine or put a CD on the server tray and plug in a serial cable to the machine so I can install it. I don't even know how would I install freebsd without using depenguinator or going on site myself. I've tested depenguinator back in the 5.4 days with some friends, just for the kicks, but as someone said before.. I can't rely on a company that knows nothing about the technology i'll be using. If anyone know a good UK or Franch dedicated server provider, let me know :) Cheers -- Alexandre Vieira - [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
