| Hello Gurus,
|     Since few years back and im on FBSD 4.8-R for commercial use.
|     Its time to move on.
|     I have two Questions, and kindly looking for answers, specialy 
that hosting company
|     contract is (NO support for FreeBSd), So i have to becareful 
again, just like what I did
|     to the 4.8-R
|     For a commercial use server
|     1) Which version do you recommend, shall I go for 7.0-R ?
|         or 6.3-R.

7 is quite good and 6.3 is the end of the line for the 6 series so I say 
go with 7
|     2) Hosting company hardware is
|    * Single Intel E6300 CORE 2 DUO 1.86Ghz /1066MHz FSB /2MB L2 
Cache    * 2GB DDR2 RAM    * 2x 250GB/7200 RPM Serial ATA Drives - Hot 
Swap; RAID1    * 3Ware 8006-2LP SATA RAID Controller    * 2 10/100/1000 
Ethernet ports

I can't speak for the storage system but everything else looks fine
|     Any of the above parts incompatabile with FreeBSD, or it has any bug ?
|     do you recommend something else?
|     They didnot mention the brand of ethernet ports, from my experince 
I will go for
|      Linksys, any better recomendations ?

Ever since cisco bought linksys the quality has been going down.
