Yeah, it bounced from the list...I think the listserver didn't like my
digital signature for some reason. :p
Anyway, as I remember you can only set it before installation. I had used
the 'Other' setting at first also, but that definitely didn't work. Is
there a setting for Unixware? Give that a try instead.

any idea why I don't see your respond through nntp? I see that you've sent
it to the list also. strange...

can I do it after the installation? I thought I can only do it before... If
I remember I've set it to "other" (there was no freebsd in the list).
