well, i just bought a used dell for my new DNS, mail, and web
        server.  they snickered when i asked if they would pre-install
        freebsd... so it's up  to me.  

        this dell was running losedows, vista, so i assume it has some
        kind of sound card.
        it has "256MN ATI X1300 PRo" video.  is this enough to power
        my new [year-old] 20.1" widescreen display?

        80GB drive, so it is only a server.  as well as a backup for
        critical audio and jpg files and stuff i don't want to lose.

        so: what is the URL to download the 8.0-PRE freebsd....?
        true, i haven't had to install freebsd by-hand from CDROMs for
        years, but if remory servs, more than one CD is required.
        i DO have blank DVD-RW discs ... if we've got a DVD distro

        thanks in advance, gents,


        PS:  the "breakthru" is that i'll be doing everything with my
             one hand/arm.
