A little off topic maybe, but I wanto write some GL code for bsd so I guess its ok. When I try and install it to dual boot with my windows machine it tells me my drive geometry is incorrect. Whats the deal?? What should I do? Thanks

Off of a CD but I investigated drive geometry but I dont understand why the OS needs it. It seems OS''s deal with the hard disk at a lower level than I had expected

You should try the newbie or question mailing lists at www.freebsd.org.

As far as I know you just need a primary partition for FreeBSD. I think 10GB problem was resolved a while ago. You just need to install the bootloader.

I would recommend using 4.7. I read the mailing lists and current still sounds buggy.

I guess that its just a bug. I''ll try 5.0 when it comes out cuz 4.6 & 4.7 installed fine.
