Hi all,

I have two questions-

How long will it take-
And do I need to stop the other programs from running -

The reason I ask is because I use the bsd box as a mail filter

Running Exim SA and ClamAv so I need to know how long it would take if I have
to take it off line-

My box is a PIII 500mhz with 512 ram

You don't need to take the box offline, although it may slow things down a tad bit. You're probably looking at an overnight event for the buildworld. Make sure you buildkernel as well.

Alternatively, you *could* buildworld/kernel on a second box, NFS mount the /usr/src and /usr/obj directories and installworld/kernel from there. We have ~30 similar FreeBSD systems and one build box. Kinda helps us stay consistent, etc.
