  Subject: FreeBSD users of Thailand

  To whom it may concern :

      We, among the few advanced FreeBSD users of Thailand, have been =
using FreeBSD, Desktop mode (with the emphasis on Desktop) for quite =
sometime. As you may know copyright infringement is a concern in =
countries like Thailand. In order to avoid such problems, we think using =
FreeBSD will help. Seeing that the latest FreeBSD version, running in =
desktop mode is quite stable, a few users myself included, have been =
using it in the office.=20

      We would like to expand our user base in Thailand. Particular =
problems popped up among the newbies when they start to install, ie, =
unsucessful installation due to incomplete software in the CD disk (cd =
error) or an error during port installation (can't find dependency =
files). In addition, due to the majority of users still using low speed =
modem, this has created a significant hinderance and discouragement when =
errors occured due to failure to find dependency files (not FreeBSD's =
fault though). The other problem is the language problem, since we are =
not an english speaking country, a lot of users have problems with the =
manual. As a result, we would like to create a setup FreeBSD CD for =
desktop users similar to those done in with PC-BSD or DragonFly disks. =
In addition we will try to add thai language instructions in this =
special distribution.=20

      Since we have never taken on this kind of task before, we would =
like to ask if any party in charge from FreeBSD organization or anyone =
else has any suggestion regarding a setup disk similar to the above =
mentioned distros. So we can begin by distributing to the new users in =
Thailand for now. We hope that they learn to use this easy-use limited =
version, and with more experience they will grow to use a full FreeBSD =
user later on.=20

      The plan is to include in the CD only OS & the basic application  =
software  deemed necessary ( such as apache, php etc.)  for starters so =
they can be up and running FreeBSD.

      If there are any step-by-step instructions or person from whom we =
can get some help, we would be grateful.=20

      Attached are our captured screens showing what we have been using =
and doing.

      There is an on going project, trying to translate the FreeBSD =
handbook into thai=20


      Although it is a long way to completion.

      We hope this is compatible with FreeBSD distribution policies.

      Again, thanks for any advice and information.=20
