You don't have to boot the fixit cd - just mount it and look. I'm sure that what you will find on the CD is a pretty complete FreeBSD system, with the layout described in the hier man page. All the Fixit CDROM is is a complete FreeBSD system. That's the single best tool you could be provided for fxing a fried system. Creating special documentation for that is pretty much pointless, because all it would do is duplicate the existing documentation. To learn about how to repair systems with the Fixit CD, you need to learn how to repair systems with FreeBSD. That documentation is in the man pages, the handbook and the FAQ. Basically, there's nothing special or magical about the Fixit disk, so there's no need for any special documentation. If you believe that's wrong, please feel free to write it and submit it as either a FAQ or handbook entry. I'll be more than happy to review your words if you want. <mike -- Mike Meyer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://www.mired.org/consulting.html Independent WWW/Perforce/FreeBSD/Unix consultant, email for more information.
