Need some install Tips and Suggestions
I am currrently in need of installing FreeBSD on my box. Basically i intend to do some kernel level programming stuff on it and some TCP/IP stack networking.
I have worked for quite some time on many linux distros like Fedora, RHCE and debian. But, i am new to FreeBSD.
The problem is that i've used only desktops for all these. This time i am need of installing FreeBSD on a branded HP laptop. So, i was thinking if it would be good enough to work using Vmware. I dont know if i will have any problems getting internet activated and networking working properly using Vmware.
The only thing i am happy about is that even if the system crashes, only my Vmware instance will be affected and my basic OS will remain intact.
For further details, my laptop configuration is
HP dv 6000 series
1.6 Ghz dual core
80 gb hdd
256 MB Nvidia Graphics card
It would be nice if you could let me know of any known issues with FreeBSD regarding this.
Thanks in advance,
