A few days ago I tried to install my FreeBSD 2.0.5 double CD version but it could not be possible because it was requiring sound card attached old model CD-ROM drive . Over time . daily requirements is driving the selection of operating systems and personally I do not have any prejudice against to any one of the operating systems . As a person living as a computing specialist since 1975 I appreciate the difficulty of development of an operating system and really thank to all of the persons contributing to the open source operating systems ( I use nearly solely Fortran an Pascal ) . I like FreeBSD very much and I want to see it much more better than its actually very very good state . One point for improvement is the easiness of usability for the new comers . Second is its installation easiness which at present I find it very difficult ( for example , during installation , it is not possible to go back to correct an entry . Due to this , sometimes it is becoming necessary to power off the computer and re-start from the beginning ) . Third is use of Live FS CD . There is no any documentation about installation step ( Fix It ) or I do not know any . Thank you very much .
