Hi Tom,

Fantastic!  Thanks for checking that.  I gather that it's usually fairly easy to 
install but occasionally people stumble into some weird problems for no readily 
apparent reason.  Much the same as installs to any other OS really.  However it 
seems that Bsd users are often more experienced and able to fix simpler problems 
themselves so we might not be hearing about all the problems and just get the 
toughest ones.  I tend to send Bsd people straight to the devs list because 
hardly anyone on the users or marketing lists has a clue about Bsd.  

Yes, most people using BSD already know what they are doing. The forum
discussions for FreeBSD and PC-BSD are also at hand for people having

I don't think you should install Bsd yourself except that it's interesting to 
explore and can lead to much greater understanding of your preferred OS too.

Oh, I'm not worried about that, I've run various versions of BSD in the
past, from 5.x through to 6.x, it is actually where I started building
my own stuff really for the first time in a big way, so I know what lies
in store :-)). My biggest issue with it was its (at the time) poor
management of disk space, if you ran out, the whole system crashed and
was often left in an unrecoverable state - b****y UFS file system, and
the fact that it wasn't very good at supporting various wifi chipsets,
even after building them :-/ Hopefully things have improved now :-) ran pretty well on it too.
