Yes. To both. lynx or maybe opera depending on if it's a console install or X install. Otherwise could be used from remote so the people unfamiliar with this OS (let's think datacenter) can pop in a disk, assign an IP (maybe within the lynx/opera browser), and offer up a password to secure the remote install. I like this idea, but it's my plaything when it comes to actually making a prototype when I decide if I want to move further into it or bail on it. The idea just sounded nice. --TJ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
