I want to install FreeBSD 5.4 onto a partition on my 1 year old HP
I've done a lot of Linux distro installs, and sometimes I need to give
the installer a hint about the graphics card,
typically something like:
boot: linux vga=771
When I try the FreeBSD installer, the screen goes blank about 5 seconds
after it starts booting from the CD, typically at the point where it
switches to X Window in a Linux install.
Is there a similar hint I can give FreeBSD about the type of graphics
to use? What are the syntax and choices?
I have googled for this without success. Thanks,
