This might better be asked offlist, but there may be others like me who are clueless, and since you are familiar, I'll ask you. How "interact-able" are FBSD and (say) MacBook? E.g., is there a "BSD-way" of my creating an account of the Apple and using is? It's got @G of RAM, and a 160G drive [!]. Apple says in plain text that is is UNIX. (or maybe Berkeley Unix). So besides the mac firewall [whatever], the laptop will be behind my pfSense box. So... --and to be completely honest, the main reason for this >> $1000 laptop is *security*. When she was younger I wasn't that concerned is some kiddie cracker learned that her favorite pet was a kitty. Different now. Another question: can I install X11 without it bothering whatever kind of mac front-end windowing comes with? Be great if I could admin this BSD-based computer from my office. thankee much! gary > > -- John > -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
