The idea of installing FreeBSD 6.4 and experiment with upgrading to7.x 
and above appeals to quite a lot. If anyone have tried this I`d like to 
know if it is doable. I guess I`ll pick up the server one of the coming 

The tip on using OpenVMS is okay, I googled it. But this seems to be a 
commercial OS, and I have no money to spend on it, and I get the server 
for free to play with. So BSD will be fine.

I`ll try FreeBSD first, and OpenBSD next I think if the experience of 
FreeBSD 6.4 and above is not totally pleasant...
