	Thanks for the Help

Greetings Tilly and welcome to NYCBUG.

Generally, FreeBSD is considered the easiest install, and it's getting
easier and more configurable with each release through the install

I assume you're running Intel-based i386 hardware, but if not, you
should look at NetBSD.

I hadn't installed it in several years, to be honest, but I found it
remarkably simple and straight-forward.

Why some find the *BSD's difficult to install, I don't quite understand,
but the most important thing is to actually RTFM.  So much technical
documentation does seem useless and irrelevant, but the related BSD
documentation for installs is nothing short of amazing.  Start by
browsing the documentation with the BSD you choose, and I think you'll
find all of them quite straight-forward.

And if you have any questions, feel free to post them to thist list.
