    This is a very useful page.

    http://www.freebsd.org/releases/5.3R/hardware-i386.html

    The system minimums are something very nominal, but you want to have hardware that the system supports, as some of the oddballs or corporate leftovers are a pain to get working.

    All IMHO.

    Thanks. I already seen it though but it reminded me to check out my ethernet card which is compatible. I really just want to know what the hdd and ram requirements are.

    I've learned the hard way to do this. (There are other hard lessons about not eating peanut butter after broccoli, etc. but that's for another forum.)

    I'm afraid to ask
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Well when I had freebsd running, it was a disaster to be honest...

    1. No Sound, Whatsoever
    2. Screwed Up Fonts In KDE, which I prefer using in BSD, because theres tons more support for it.

    I would have kept using it in gnome but the sound did it for me.

    At some point, they're going to spin off BSD into a "Desktop" version which entirely uses KLDs for hardware.... that'll make such things easier. What kind of soundcard, or was it on the motherboard?

    Well thats good to hear, it's a motherboard intergrated device, piece of **** but suits it's purpose, it works on every main linux distro ive tried, not unix yet though.

    There's a pretty good chance running this as root would solve the problem:
    Code:
    kldload snd_driver
    And I don't know what you mean by "screwed up"
