Please keep the list in all of your replies as there are many, many people who have a lot more knowledge that I do. I have added the list back in. http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/install.html This is about as step-by-step as you can get. It even has pictures of the screens you encounter. It is reached by clicking on "documentation" and then "handbook". It is also suggested that you read the entire handbook before starting the install. I started with FreeBSD about 5 or 6 years ago. I, too, had problems at first but instead of whining on the questions list, I read the manual and lurked on the mailing list. I have found that the people on this list are more than willing to help anyone as long as that person gives their best effort at learning. Those that choose to complain and compare FreeBSD to other OS's usually are ignored or told to go back to the OS that they feel is better. FreeBSD takes some time to get the feel of. If you choose to spend the time to become familiar with it you will be rewarded with an OS that allows you to do what you want. If you have specific questions when trying to install FreeBSD, then by all means ask on this list. Be sure to document what you have done, where the failure occurred and what you have tried. It is also recommended to include the information about the version of FreeBSD you are trying to install and some of your hardware specs. I sincerely hope this helps. I would like to welcome you to FreeBSD and I hope you find it as satisfying as I have. If you have more questions, feel free to ask. Just remember to include the list because I am wrong as often as I am right. :-) Robert P.S. The normal format for all of the FreeBSD list is to not top post. That is to either place all of you replies at the bottom or within the text where you are responding to a specific paragraph or statement. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
