I want to install FreeBSD 5.3 onto a rackmount server that came with two SATA hard drives
(it came with no CD or floppy). I will borrow a keyboard and monitor because I was informed
today on this list that a "headless install" from my laptop over a null-modem cable would slow.
I was going to buy a cheap USB floppy drive today (I saw prices from $30 to $50) but at jandr.com in NYC today I saw a USB CD-RW/DVD+/-RW on sale for $99
(Panasonic DVRS706) so I got that instead, figuring it was "more bang for the buck".
Can I install FreeBSD 5.3 from this USB CD drive?
If not, what sort of CD drive can I install from?
