Hi, I have a sony vaio that used to run windows me.
the system no longer wants to recognize the restoration cd.
I am not a microsoft lover so i decided to use something else.
my cdrom didnt want to read any of the iso's i downloaded
before like ubuntu, dream linux and so forth. i went to
the library and found a book tittled "freebsd in 24hrs"
with companion cd. my pc read the cd and i was able
to install freebsd i believe version 4 or something
like that. I am very happy with it but would like
to update the freebsd. I tried to get the freebsd to see the internet connection
so that i can update from within freebsd but i
havent been able to get it to see the dsl
connection that is connected to a linksys router. I was hoping you can help me either set up the
internet connection in freebsd or at least
suggest which of the files I should download
from this xp machine so that i can burn a
cd and upgrade my freebsd machine. i dont
know if its alpha, amd or which of the
files. and also when i select the one
you may suggest do i click iso link,
and also..do i burn all the files
shown for that option?
i.e. bootonly, cd1, cd2,
checksum and so forth. thank you. i hope to hear
from you soon. i am very happy that my dead pc is alive again. thank you.
