I hope I do not get flamed for saying this... I am a new arrival to *BSD though I have used Linux for ten years. I think that if you want a working system right off the bat, PC-BSD or DesktopBSD would be a better introduction for you. I liked PC-BSD and found it as easy to install as Xandros or Linspire or Freespire Linuxes. I mention those because those Linuxes are easy to install. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
