Thank you much for your input.
after thinking this over a few weeks ago,
it did seem to be the best bet to go for 5.4 stable.
i gave 6.0 release its chance, things didnt
seem to work as i needed them.
5.4 release does not support Eclipse 3.1 at all.
this is why i needed 5.4 stable !
as hard as i tried to stay simple on
using FreeBSD, FreeBSD led me to 5.4 stable
as of Feb1, 2006 at 10:00 GMT..... all working this far.
Software has its own mind, it will & has led us here.
i could go on & on about what i think about all this.
but the truth is, FreeBSD software led me here !
What i am upto with freebsd 5.4 stable ?
FreeBSD 5.4 stable.
OSCommerce 2.2 MS2
Eclipse 3.1 <------- needs 5.4 stable
