Given that the project is run almost entirely by volunteers, I suppose some disconnects are inevitable. One example: it's considered very important for questions@ to be newbie-friendly, to the point of accepting posts from non-subscribers, but it's *not* considered important to tune up sysinstall to prevent botches like installing a system that can't be booted because it has no kernel. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
