Well....I known but I can do that now. Because I can reboot the server, but
I can re-install (I don't have access to the console).

Yes...the same server running with 0 crash during 3.5 years in same

After I pass to 6.x (01/2006) I loose the count of crash

FreeBSD is the best NFS server (and best OS I known).......long time ago :-((((((

Personnaly I prefer to have a very stable NFS server, and I don't really
care to have wpa or something like that.

I'm not developper, then I don't known the problem of FreeBSD, but I'm very
sad to see the situation of 6.x (em problem, watchdog, crash etc...). Now
I'm looking of OpenBSD....
