Thanks for the help. Now comes the "fun" part. Building,
installing, kernel, & so forth. Plenty of books here.
Unfortunately, they each seem to have their own way of
doing things in the instructions. Like one not mentioning
to drop to single user when doing installworld. Very
confusing for someone relatively new to this. Think I'd
be better off just sticking with the fbsd documentation.
