Sample text

Assembling a tool on the command line is fairly easy compared to compiling a whole software package. These smaller programs also provide unparalleled flexibility. Have you ever wished you could use a function from one program in another program? By using a variety of smaller programs and arranging the inputs and outputs as you like, you can make the system behave in any manner that amuses you. Many modern platforms have only started catching up with this idea of small, reusable tools in the last few years.

1: First boot menu If you have old hardware, you might have to configure the kernel, which means telling the kernel about your hardware. For example, FreeBSD supports ISA network cards from the early 1990s but requires a very particular configuration to work properly. ) If you don't have any ISA cards, you can just continue with the install, but if you're using ISA cards, you'll need to configure your kernel to use them. Personally, I recommend replacing ISA cards with PCI whenever possible; they're easier to manage and have much better throughput.

Still, FreeBSD will run best with certain minimum configurations. Here are some basic recommendations. Processor Your brand of processor is really irrelevant to FreeBSD; FreeBSD won't care if you're running an Intel, AMD, IBM, or Cyrix CPU. It probes the CPU on booting, and uses whatever chip features it recognizes. I've run effective servers on 486 machines before—in fact, I've filled a T1 Internet circuit with a 486. However, I would still recommend that you get a Pentium or faster CPU. Some of the demonstrations in this book take less than an hour on my twin 1 GHz Pentium system, but take almost three days on my ancient 25 MHz 486.
