When using the FBSD bootable CDROM to install FBSD the first thing
to display on the screen is the 'Kernel configuration menu'. The
handbook says to select the 'Start kernel configuration in
full-screen visual mode' which takes you to the 'Kernel Device
Configuration Visual Interface' screen that always has 7 irq
conflicts. The 7 conflicts are built into FBSD because the Nic cards
the irq conflicts are on are all old style ISA cards, and just
responding with a Q to quite without deleting the conflicts causes
no problems.

This seems like it's no longer necessary to stop at this screen and
that at the first screen
'Kernel configuration menu' the 'Skip kernel configuration and
continue with installation' option should be the one taken.

My question, what purpose does the 'Kernel Device Configuration
Visual Interface' screen serve and can people safely use the 'Skip
kernel configuration and continue with installation' from the
'Kernel configuration menu'?

Thanks for your help
Joe
