only reasons are:
- 5.5 is the declared legacy version of FreeBSD, for a remote server,
I tend to be conservative in my choices;
- I never used version 6 yet, I prefer using something I am familiar with :)
- when I was away trying to install the machine, downloading FreeBSD
6.2 was not possible, while buying a card could have been possible
(if any was available on the market there).
I'll look at version 6.2.
