On Sunday I tried to install FreeBSD via FTP...I used the entire disk (no
probs, got to get rid of Windoze).
Everything went fine...Configured my Kernel a little bit (to be sure it
downloads well). Then went to network configuration. It was trying to find
my DHCP server (I have a cablemodem with a 3Com Ethernetcard, no problem to
configure it). Everything fine, gateway OK, IP adress OK, DHCP server
Chose my FTP server and it started downloading all the files....No problem,
I was using FReeBSD within seconds (well, actually, minutes)
I then reinstalled Windows (didn't know how to surf with FReeBSD) , because
I'm an absolute newbie in Unix based system and tried to learn more about
the commands and everything...So, I learned a little bit more....
Next day (Monday) I installed FreeBSD again, but with a premade partition
(that's: Partition for Windows and a partition for FreeBSD)
No problem...Configured kernel the same ( I think), got the network
configuration. It asked again: Do you want to update DHCP server..I typed
Same gateway, DNS server, IP adress appears and continue
Then the installation prog says: Cant' find ftp.blablah.com. Are you sure
gateway etc is properly installed?
Then I tried it with committing the whole harddisk again(to FreeBSD)....I
got the same shit like that....Reinstalled Windows ('98), configured my
network card...NO problem!!!!
Tried to install FreeBSD again, since my networkcard seems to work...
Did the whole sh* again...It still didn't work....
What am I doin wrong here...Anybody has a clue?
Thanks in advance,
