you should read about ports from the ports you can install
applications in to FreeBSD and a tip is that if you want X(graphics)
you need a bigger drive then 261mb

two good consol based web-browsers are links and lynx
they are located in /usr/ports/www/links and /usr/ports/www/lynx

I got so frustrated that I didn't know how to use FreeBSD and the fact that Elmira is a Windows city was completely agitating me, so I ended up uninstalling FreeBSD from my main hardrive, re-installed Windows, and I am e-mailing you guys for help, but don't fret, I have not left FreeBSD high and dry. I am going to install it onto my very old 261MB SeaGate HDD. But if I am going to use FreeBSD I need help getting used to it. Like, for example, how do I run a program, let's say Netscape for example. Please do help! I have always heard good reports about UNIX based OSes like FreeBSD. Thank-you.
