[nycbug-talk] new to freebsd install on thinkpad 560x

Hi Josh,

FreeBSD 4.9 is the latest production code.  5.2 is the 
latest "new-technology" release.  I run 4.9 on my Thinkpad
and 5.2 on some servers that I don't care about.

That said, many folks find 5.x behaves quite well.

I'd recommend downloading the ISO image for whichever release
you decide to use and booting from that.  It also helps to 
have another Internet connection handy to refer to the 
FreeBSD handbook-


See Chapter 2 for Installation.

Happy Installing!

floppy). Anyone have any pointers or advice?
