Hi FreeBSD folk.
I am reading this install guide. And it doesn't get me past this one.
For one. I downloaded the AMD64 ISO's. And this loader say's freeBSD/i386. Anyway.
I boot to the loader and I can't select anything. Then BTX HALTED. That is all she
wrote. If you all have the answer to this one. Please inform me.
I have an AMD ATHLON XP SYSTEM I am installing this on. I reformatted the hard drive with
the NTFS file system. I will continue to search for documentation on this. My goal is
to get this operating system installed. And have a few nice applications installed. Slowly
but surely familiarize with various aspects.
I know with this op you need to have a lot more knowledge than with Windows. You need to
know more settings and configurations to different things. Once I dial it all in I will
feel I have climbed mount everest!! Thanks. Jerry in Corning CA.
