    Nice tutorial Gore. I browsed thru it and it is very accurate and easy to read/understand.

    Rajunpl, I would also check out the freebsd web site. You can find alot of information at the web site including the manual, and you can also get support. The web site is located at Freebsd.org.

    You only need the first cd , the 2nd cd is a fixit cd which is probably beyond your abilities to use at the moment and uneeded. There is no third cd, only a mini-iso which is the same as the first cd, except it has no packages, only the base install. Personally i just download the mini iso and then get the software from the ftp , but if you are on dialup download the full first cd.

    You should read the handbook
    file:///usr/share/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/index.html
    http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO...ook/index.html
    The documentation is quite complete and comprehensive.
