Hello Matthew,

thank you very much. It's excatly you say. FreeBSD is my option because of
"historical reasons". Someone has installed it for me two years ago, and now
I love it (he installed it after two hacks and two reinstallations of RedHat
Linux [I don't want to say, RHL is not good, but FBSD is better :-) {now I
see the storm, like with I'm christian...... mail to this list :-))) } ] ).

Wow, such a short sentence I just produced :-)

Peter Rosa
