Most browsers will download ftp files for you if you click on them. Otherwise, just run cmd on your MS-Win system and then do ftp ftp.freebsd.org login as anonymous with a password of your email address cd to the right directory (down a ways) NOTE: Case is significant in these names. cd pub cd FreeBSD cd releases cd i386 cd ISO-IMAGES cd 4.9 You can do all this in one cd command cd pub/FreeBSD/releases/i386/ISO-IMAGES/4.9 but I always make typing mistakes so I do it in pieces. set it to binary (type binary) retrieve the files by typing get XXXXXXXXXXXX.ISO whatever the filename is get 4.9-i386-mini.iso get CHECKSUM.MD5 (Checksum on ly needed for verification) quit out of ftp by typing 'bye' Find some instructions for your particular machine on burning the ISO to a CD NOTE: It is already an ISO so you do not have to make an ISO out of it. Just burn that file to CD. Boot it and install will begin. Follow it through and select installation over the net and select a convenient (close) ftp site. Probably you had better do some manual reading before actually trying this stuff out though. ////jerry > Regards=0D > Mark =0D > Europe _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
