Usually, windows will show up in the BSD boot manager as ???, so the boot prompt on my system (Win2K and FreeBSD 5.1) is the following:
F1 ??? F2 FreeBSD When I've installed FreeBSD on a physically separate drive, it usually creates two boot menus similar to the following: F1 ??? F2 Disk 1 (pressing F2) F1 Disk 0 F2 FreeBSD As far as getting KDE to work, you should have the following in your user directory (usually /home/<username>) in the file .xinitrc exec startkde You can put other things in there, say if you wanted to start ymessenger or something similar as you load KDE. If you want to boot into graphical right away, see the post I just went through from the last couple days: KDM and FreeBSD HTH Eric F Crist AdTech Integrated Systems, Inc (952) 403-9000 -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of David Witt Sent: Saturday, October 04, 2003 4:27 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: BSD Question I'm a Unix newbie who just installed BSD 5.1. I made it through the installation without too much of a hassel and I went ahead and added XFree86 in the installation, along with the BSD Boot Manager since I'm dual booting with Windows. I have a 40 gig HD for Windows then I have 2 separate 120 gig HD raided in 0 config for BSD. The boot manager is installed with the rest of BSD on the raid but when it loads and I go to pick, both options boot to BSD. F1 is labeled FreeBSD and F5 is labeled Drive 1, which I was under the illusion should be windows but it turns out its not. When I boot into BSD, it leads me to a text based login screen, how do I get KDE to function. Thank you in advance.
