Installing freeBSD

Hi all, I think this is the first time I put some technical stuff on my blog.
OK. I choose to give some lesson on how to install a freeBSD on your machine.

hmm..its really nice if you have a vmware(any type of Vm) installed on your machine. so it can decrease the percentage of data corruption or etc.
Ok I will install the freeBSD 6.3, its freely available on the net.

I think its probably easier to install freeBSD compared to other existing OS. but for the first time user, if there is no reference or guidance it may takes a days trying to understand and install the freeBSD or maybe it will end up with error or something suck. and you will screaming loudly "aaaaaaaaaaaaa IM GIVE UP!!!" and people will noticed that the screamer is a loser. lol

ok lets start dude!!

The first basic thing is, you need to insert a bootable CD on your CD drive. omg what a boring task

Ok then, you need to choose what type of installation that you want.
-normally 3 choices provided by the system i.e express , standard or custom installation

-for this lesson - i will choose Custom as a type of installation. because it would be easy to be explained

after that, select the partition partition editor since we are using VM as a platform for this installation, a virtually partition need to be specified first on VM console. and then we will use entire spaces that we had set.
if you want to install physically (No VM), there a two things that you need to consider first.if you want to shared a drive with another OS (let say, windows). carefully delete unwanted slices( not been used by windows) and using it for BSD. it need to be done carefully or you will lost your data instead. if you want your machine ONLY has a BSD installed. just used entire drive to make it easier.

ok what you need to do in disk label editor? Ok i will recommend you to create atleast 4GB for root file sys. SWAP space for example 512mb atleast:). but make sure its at least !1mb larger then max memory on your system (normaly i used to set my SWAP space 2 times bigger than memory. and 1 more slices for /home, you can set as large as you can dude!!it depend on your own usage.

( i will try to explain and provide with some example and info that i got from the net regarding on the SWAP space on the next post)<----if I'm in my mood.:P

OMG i forgot to explained on BootMgr MBR..zzz...actualy i forgot where this things is located. i thing maybe on the partition editor you need to select BootMgr MBR. i guess so....:P

then install a complete system or you can customize your self based on your usage, and give the final confirmation. Then the system will starting the installation process.

that all dude..actually im not an expert, if there is any mistakes on this post,please correct me, as human we commit mistakes, I'm still new for this kind of stuff or in the other word I'm still a kid or baby in UNIX world.LoL. the real reason why i write this kind of things is because as my personal references and of course to encourage knowledge sharing among us. after 25years standing in this world. i realized my brain faced a bad sector problem phenomena and nearly corrupted. So i need to take a vitamin to develop back Those bad sector cell in my brain and this thing act as my backup (backup tape :P) for the data maybe will missing soon. I hope not...
