I was reading the freebsd installation guide, and see that it states to take down system information that is logged in my os (hardware, drivers, etc.) how would i do this? I'm using slackware on the box in question.
it might be wise to print a copy of files you have changed in /etc ... like rc.conf and rc.local
If you are going to dual boot then most of this information can be gained by mounting the linux disk and poking around etc.
I think that instruction is more applicable to windows because it makes it much harder to find the information if you don't boot into the system. As everything works in Linux I expect you will not have any problems with FreeBSD
i know it missed a couple things when i loaded linux, but they are very inconsiquential (i.e. radio tuner, video capture card, etc.)
my pc isn't powerful enough for half of the gadget i got for it.
time to upgrade.
thanks for the details.
i was advised on the forum that i would need to know the cylinders and things like that.
if i'm not dual booting the directions say this is not needed.
what is correct?
