Does FreeBSD run well on the Mac Mini (x86)? I'm considering
one to use for both MacOS and FreeBSD (booting from an external

Yep, it works fine. I used boot camp to create a small boot
partition on the internal drive, and it loads everything else from an
external USB drive.
Thanks. A few more questions:
- Any reason to prefer USB over Firewire?
No, it's just what I had.
- Do you have to use a boot partition on the internal disk? Can
FreeBSD boot from external USB or Firewire?
I am not sure. From what I understand, intel macs can boot from
either USB or Firewire provided that they are partition using GPT. I
used a boot partition on the external disk because I couldn't get it
to work, and didn't care to spend much time on it.
- Which release of FreeBSD are you using?
