I'm completely new to openbsd. I have been using Linux, and wanted to
see what this is all about. I have a CD from Cheapbytes with openbsd.
When I tried to install to a disk that has Linux, and has a partition
reserved for obsd, I get a bunch of warnings about partitions not being
on LBA boundaries. I didn't know if these were fatal, so I tried to
continue. It then talks about "labeling" the disk, and asks if I want
to install to wd0 or wd1. I don't know how the partitions are labeled
in bsd, so I didn't get much farther. I think I actually tried each of
these in turn, but it didn't work.
So I guess my questions are whether there might be a problem installing
to a disk which was partitioned with the Linux fdisk, and what the
partition labels wd0 and wd1 mean. While I'm at it, can I share a swap
partition with Linux?
I'm sure I'll come across a bunch of other things I don't know. Is
there a good newbie site with this kind of information? or a good book
someone could recommend?
