I am going to be setting up a modest FreeBSD box to serve as a IP
masquerade rig, a web server, etc. etc. I have all the hardware save
the one part, and I am planning my install.
I do not have a bootable CD-ROM disk to use to install. I have a cable
modem, but the net install is not an option -- I'd have to switch my
MAC with the ISP to the NIC in the FBSD box, which would fubar net
access to the Wintel box. Can't do that, because it will take me some
time to get IP masqueading going, and I can't be without basic stuff
like email while I am screwing around learning the ropes on fbsd.
What I would LIKE to do is burn a vanilla DOS CD with all the 3.2 dist
files, use a fbsd boot floppy, and install off the CD. I'd like to
avoid making a DOS partition on the server's hard disk for the install
files if it is at all possible.
Based on my reading of the fbsd install files, I don't think that I can
do this -- I'm hoping someone will tell me that I am wrong.
Thanks in advance for any help...
