Have you ever read the post about "No modem with Redhat"?? I still can't get the modem to work because i'm having a tough time learning the commands. I can't just read your post and learn commands. I already feel lost.
Will a internal winmodem recognize in NetBSD?? I don't think it will. I just thought i will double check on that. If it won't recognize in Redhat Linux 8 and 9. I don't think it will recognize in NetBSD. Does anyone know about that?? Please reply back. Thanks.
whansard. Do you have any information about this multiple dual boot?? Do you have any information about any of my hardware that would recognize in NetBSD?? yes i know i am taking a big step. NetBSD is a variant to Unix at the University Of California. Berkely. If i spelled that right. Please reply back. Thanks whansard.
wow really?? I just cross my fingers and hope so. If it does. I think i give up on Redhat. Redhat does not recognize. Here is another question. After i burn the .iso image to CD. I know i have to restart my computer. How do i install NetBSD and how do i partition NetBSD?? Is it the same way as Redhat?? In the order of /boot (50megs) / (3gigs or more) /swap (2x your ram) For me it would be 512 megs for swap. How is NetBSD different in installing?? I'm trying to get as much information. Please reply back. Thanks.
to: whansard. Have you ever used NetBSD before?? Let's take it one step at a time. I wanted a multiple dual boot with Windows XP, Redhat Linux 8 and NetBSD 1.6.1. I know windows XP would be installed first. Would it then come Redhat or NetBSD?? Can you give me clear instructions on how to install NetBSD and how to partition it?? I never used NetBSD before. Please reply back. Thanks whansard.
