Does the FreeBSD 6.2 installer support a network install over an ethernet interface connected to a DSL modem using a PPPoE connection?
I am switching ISPs from a cable-based provider to a DSL-based provider and would like to install FreeBSD on an old PC to set it up as a router/firewall for my home network. And since this old PC does not have a CD-ROM drive I'd like to a network install using PPPoE. But I haven't been able to find any current information on how to accomplish this. There used to be an (unofficial) page by Randy Pratt: "Installing FreeBSD Using PPPoE": <http://www.treefort.org/~rpratt/pppoe/article.html> but it's no longer there. Any help/advice is appreciated. Thanks! PS: I am not subscribed to this list, so please CC: me on all replies/follow-ups. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Sick sense of humor?
