All I did was a "developer" (not x developer) sysinstall off 7.0 disk
1. No tweaking, hacking, or extra packages until I got a clean boot
onto the new disk. I'm somewhere between user and power user. I have
5 running freebsd systems under my belt, and was going to do my laptop
(I've given up on it several times already - bloody compaq).

Seems to me, they all use gnuinfo instead of manpages? I don't even
know what gnuinfo is, nor linuxulator.
(!) Bison won't even install (makes fine, but install fails), and
that's pretty darn basic, no?
