Did you read the FreeBSD Handbook at freebsd.org? It gives lots of basic information on how to install, configure, troubleshoot, and use FreeBSD, and it applies to 5.1 as well as 4.x. What exactly do you want to configure? It looks like you've got 5.1 installed, so what do you want to do next? -- Matthew Graybosch http://www.starbreaker.net "I am become root, shatterer of kernels." PS: If you're using the root account for everyday work, like posting to mailing lists, STOP THIS INSTANT! Read Section 8 of the handbook, "Users and Basic Account Management" at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/users.html Even if you're the only one who uses the machine, you should use a normal account instead of root, both for security reasons (do you want to leave an open root session unattended while you're in the john?) and to avoid destroying your system if you make a silly mistake. Under Unix, root is GOD, and you have to be careful with that kind of power. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
