My company uses Coldfusion 4.5 (yea the code is so terrible that we cannot move all the sites to MX version) for both Windows and Linux.

Upon the beginning of my employment, I have moved the company toward FreeBSD.  I plan to leave the current Linux system (that is running Coldfusion) alone because I have researched on the possiblity of running Coldfusion server on FreeBSD with Linux Emulation.

BlueDragon is something that I have never heard of.  I started to read the site and noticed that they provide a Linux script as an installer.  Perhaps you could hack it around to get it running under the Linux Emulation.

If you succeed..let me know...I am pushing the company toward getting rid of Coldfusion because our sites on Windows got terrible problems that involve intermittent downtimes.
