Hi, We would like to tune FreeBSD according to our business needs. Please forward some documents for how to compile the Free BSD kernel and how we can deploy our compiled version of Free BSD into a new machine.
Please help me ASAP Cheers, B.Manikandan UK ------------------------------------------------------------ Manolis Kiagias <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 03/12/2007 08:49 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] cc: email@example.com Subject: Re: Fw: Can I install Free BSD latest version on my laptop with dual boot?

Additionally, I find nvidia chipsets to be widely compatible with FreeBSD. You don't mention devices like wireless and ethernet, if you do know the models, you may be able to find if they are supported in the release notes / hardware compatibility of FreeBSD. The graphics card will be no problem with either the nv open source driver or the proprietary Nvidia from ports (or from nvidia directly). About your questions on dual boot, since I have a notebook dual booting (actually triple booting) Vista, FreeBSD and Linux I can give you some hand on information: - The info you have been given about Partition Magic, GParted and PartedMagic should work fine. You could use any of these tools to shrink your Windows Vista partition. Make sure Vista boots after this operation. The new MS loader seems to break rather easily. In the event it does not boot you will need a Vista DVD to boot and select to repair. This sounds more frightening than it really is, it does not happen often and the repair works (automatically). - When installing FreeBSD, when asked about the boot manager select NOT to install it. Do NOT let it touch the MBR. Vista uses a different loader from XP and it will probably fail to boot afterwards. - When installation is finished, you will not be able to boot into FreeBSD, but fear not. Boot into Vista and install the free EasyBCD program: http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 With this, you can add the choice for FreeBSD to your Vista bootloader (a new system called BCD) . It is trivially easy to setup and works extremely well. Hope this helps. Manolis ----------------------------------------- This communication is for informational purposes only.
