For a production system, the 5.x branch of FreeBSD (sic!) is not quite ready yet, so you should better go with FreeBSD 4.9 (FreeBSD 4.x is the so-called stable branch at the present). If you insist in deploying FreeBSD 5.x, please note that FreeBSD 5.2 is already out. Before you start getting angry about having bought an out-dated version of FreeBSD, please consider the following: Depending on where you bought your CD set, it is possible, that you supported the project. You can download the very latest version (either 4.9 or 5.2) from a mirror near you (for free!): http://www.FreeBSD.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/mirrors-ftp.html There is also the possibilty to do a network install of FreeBSD, and there are several ways to keep it up-to-date. To learn about all that, you should have a look at the handbook, which is available online at: http://www.FreeBSD.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/index.html, and, if you install the documentation package, on your local hard drive: /usr/share/doc/en/books/handbook/index.html Regards, Simon
