Thinking of Installing FreeBSD
I'm thinking of install FreeBSD on one of my boxes. I'm pretty much comfortable with the CLI and coming from a Slackware background, i understand it should not be that hard getting FreeBSD to work. the only question i had is i have a really old machine, a PII-233 with about 64 Megs of RAM. the ethernet controller is recognized as a tulip on the current slack installation i'm running presently. on the hardware notes for FreeBSD it says i could use a winbond fast ethernet driver which is designed to be a DEC "tulip" alike. i tried to use the CD to boot and install FreeBSD but for some odd reason the system keeps rebooting and its not loading up the initial kernel. if i install using floppies, is there any specific images i need to use on this old machine, for the drivers and the hard-drive controller ?
Thanks for any input.
