I'm about to install FreeBSD for the first time on a new machine and
have a few questions:
1) The motherboard is an Intel DQ964GF, which uses the ICH8 chipset. Is
it better to use this in IDE or AHCI mode? (The system will be booting
from a S-ATA disk)
2) Are there any good documents discussing the relative merits of using
i386 / amd64?
3) Does anyone have any good suggestions on how to perform the
installation. The machine has no floppy or CD-ROM drive, and it's not
really convenient to temporarily add them as I may well end up going
through the install procedure several times. The options seem to be
either a USB flash drive (any thoughts on how to get a UFS file system
and FreeBSD MBR on there using only WinXP), or via the network.
Any advice much appreciated,
