thanks to all for the helpful replies. As an aside
I received this by personal email
"""Just FYI, 5.3 is not an "upgrade" from 4.9. Its about 25% slower. Do
a google groups search with "mailing.freebsd.questions 5.3 performance
tests". Robert Watson gives a pretty good explanation about the work
that needs to be done to get 5.3 up to production standards."""
I 'upgraded' to 5.3 because I see now that 4.x is regarded as a legacy
OS so decided to try it out. Can other more experienced people comment
on the above? Should I revert to 4.11 when it appears?
