Have you read the FreeBSD Handbook? It and some of the online documentation take you step by step through this. Go to the FreeBSD web site (http://www.freebsd.org/) click on documentation and chose some of the items in the list, especially the handbook. One specific item: Install Winxxx first. It does not play nicely with any other installation if you install it second. At least in the beginning, install and use the FreeBSD MBR (boot loader). You will be given three options in the FreeBSD install. Choose that one. It is a little plain and, if the other OS (Winxxx) is not one of the few it has display codes for, will just put out '???'. But, it will still boot it just fine. Later, if you feel you need a prettier selection menu while booting, then you can install something like grub or gag or write your own. But, the standard FreeBSD MBR works just fine. So, do some reading. Then do some experimenting. Use it for a while to get comfortable with it. Then change some things if you want and reinstall. ////jerry > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
