Does FreeBSD 2.0.5 even have any support for wireless networking devices?
As I recall for that vintage of FreeBSD, it was simply a matter of uncommenting
the appropriate line in /etc/inetd.conf and (re)starting inetd -- there are no
rc.subr scripts in a system that old, so to restart inetd, you'ld have to do
# kill -HUP `cat /var/run/inetd.pid`
To start it at all, just run:
Enabling it to be automatically started on reboot is pretty much the same as
nowadays: just stick inetd_enable="YES" into /etc/rc.conf. If you want to
provide anonymous FTP, then I believe there were instructions in the ftpd(8)
