Sending bug reports

I have tried to install FreeBSD 5.0 (non-stable release) and have
experienced some problems.  I would like to know where I can post these
bugs and problems, so you can figure out what's going wrong.
It would be a great pleasure for me to contribute to your problem.

Anyway, I just got one warning for you and everyone who installs the OS:
watch out with the automatic creation of the partition table!!!
It cripled my VFAT and now I lost all my data (which was located on a
seperate *backup* partition.  It seems that 2 partitions are somewhat
merged (propably just a few sectors!).  Ranish and FIPS can't help me, and
a backup utility from PartitionMagic 8.0 gives me a "Partition table
corrupt - BAD" message.

I should of been more careful!  At least I took a backup 2 days ago with a
SCSI CD-R (which also doesn't work in FreeBSD 5.0 --> detecting /cd0
instead of cd0c in FreeBSD 4.8 (stable))!

I hope this is the right address to send such bug reports.  If not, could
you please give me the email address so I can send every other problems to

Thank you.  Gonna save me data now and reformat the HD!
Kind Regards,
