Rudimentry is good :) I am a BSD noob :D

I used Memtest and I have had already run fsck since my poor hard drive was
compaining bitterly of so many cold restarts. There were some errors that
were cleaned up - and it seems a bit more stable <as in it can go a few
hours before freezing>

I pulled out my wifi card (since i wasn't even using the darn thing), the
only other thing to pull is my video card (Nividia GForce 6600) - the rest
(sound, my ethernet card etc) are all onboard.

Now I have being trying to find something comparable to windows where there
is a device manager where i can disable or enable hardware.  Is there
something like that? Or is it console command only?  I've been reading
through the handbook and the KDE doc but haven't come across much.

I'll try a benchmark prog and then try twm if there's a prob.
