If you are running AMD64, then no it would not run on an Intel core2 duo based system. Maybe consider an Athlon64 X2? You could also just backup your data, then do a fresh install of FreeBSD 7 for whatever architecture you decide to build out with, and restore your data from the backup. - mdh ____________________________________________________________________________________ Looking for last minute shopping deals?
