I'm going to hold off on replying for a day, while I give this stuff a
shot, but this part does raise a question for me...

I got my copy of FreeBSD by downloading the isos. CD 1 & 2 and "mini".
That's all that was available.
CD #1 was the only CD that was ever asked for by the system.
Where do the other CD's come into play?
What's the difference between the isos and the 4 cd set? (Aside from the
number of CDs...) I haven't seen anything that directly answers this.
I'm more than willing to support the BSD project, assuming the OS meets my
needs (and so far it looks like it probably will) I was just planning on
starting with the BSD stuffie. 8^) And the BSD books...
