In this case, I would recommend to use PC-BSD. http://www.pcbsd.org/ PC-BSD is full FreeBSD 7.1, with nice grapical installer, pre-configured for desktop use. Xorg, KDE, Firefox, Thunderbird, Open Office, flash, etc. -- all will work out of the box... After installing PC-BSD, you can think of it as a standard FreeBSD -- Upgrade ports, build kernel, etc. Regards, O.K. -- Mõõda oma inteneti kiirust / Test Your Internet speed http://tallinn.speedtest.net/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
