No, I think it's just referring to the post-install setup of a machine
as an NFS client. We're just discussing sysinstall on IRC at the
moment and have come up with the idea of asking what role the machine
will be and choosing appropriate settings. So, for example:
2x RAM swap up to 2GB RAM, and then 1x RAM
[rest of drive] /usr
Allocate 16GB to /usr and leave the rest for /var
Ask if the user wants to install MySQL or Postgresql (?)
Same layout as for Desktop but enable NFS. Or should we give 16GB
to /usr and leave the rest unallocated? I don't know enough about how
NFS servers are setup.
We *could* also choose appropriate packages similar to what Debian
does, but that's probably a step too far for FreeBSD.
