Behold! FreeBSD Druid!


Install FreeBSD 9.0 with sysinstall (!!)

NOTE: This is beta 56 of the Druid platform in-general (and thus the version "9.0b56") but it does NOT install a beta version of FreeBSD. Rather, it installs FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE (32 or 64-bit, your choice).

P.S. A note to ADVANCED users... if you're going to skip the scripted installation for any reason -- dropping to traditional sysinstall procedure -- then to utilize the on-disc RELEASE, select as your medium "Directory" and enter either (1) "/cdrom/freebsd/repos/9.0-RELEASE" or (2) "/cdrom/freebsd/repos/9.0-RELEASE-amd64". This is not intuitive and one may be tempted to select "CD-ROM" as the media type, but this is incorrect.

P.P.S. There is much more written at the newly-updated website. You'll want to hit these URLs for this software...
