The mini ISO is basically intended to be system to run the install which you do over the net - eg it boots and does some configuring slicing, labeling file system building and then you select to download everything (OS, source if desired, X, ports tree, whatever) from ftp sites. It is what I normally use. The disk1 is a bootable installation system plus the complete FreeBSD system (OS, ports tree, X, etc) along with some of the more popular ports. It does not contain all of the ports because that would take numerous CDs. I don't remember if it contains the OS source, but I kind of doubt it due to the space that would be required. > > What is disk2 iso (what's on it)? > The disk2 is a boot from CD "rescue disk". I have never used it so I don't know for sure what all is on it, but it is supposed to give you a running FreeBSD that you can use to fix fat finger and midnight mental fog errors that otherwise prevent you from booting up your already installed system enough to fix them from there. Some of the commercial CD suppliers include a couple more CDs that carry more of the ports. I don't think anyone makes a CD set that has all of them. ////jerry > Thank's in advance. > > -- > Отправлено M2, революционной почтовой программой Opera: > http://www.opera.com/ > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
