That's an interesting conditional implication thought. :-)
it has "256MN ATI X1300 PRo" video. is this enough to power
my new [year-old] 20.1" widescreen display?
Depends on your display's dpi, but should be okay.
so: what is the URL to download the 8.0-PRE freebsd....?
wait, i thought the duo core is 64bits. still 32?
true, i haven't had to install freebsd by-hand from CDROMs for
years, but if remory servs, more than one CD is required.
No. You can start the installation from the first CD which
gives you basically the OS and some packages (e. g. Linux ABI).
Everything else can be installed via ports / packages, this
means via Internet.
You can even use the boot only CD to start the installation,
or the live FS.
i DO have blank DVD-RW discs ... if we've got a DVD distro
There is a DVD available.
thanks in advance, gents,
PS: the "breakthru" is that i'll be doing everything with my
Manual operations. :-)
LOLOLOL. indeed, indeed.... thanks, Polyt.
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
