    I have been looking at FreeBSD to load but am unsure about downloading it. I know that a standard 2.2GHz AMD machine like mine would download the i386 version, but there seems to be several downloads?? Do I need to download all of them and the unload each one to a separate disk or onto one disk. I usually put it on a DVD disk and its usually fine from others I have tried.

    Looking forward to your advice

    Thanks

    Tony

    You can get the 7.1-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso.gz gzipped image.
    If you have a good internet connection you can get just the 7.1-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso and then install additional packages from the ftp servers.

    what do you mean by several download
    pick architecture [i386 if you got 32bit or 64bit CPU. amd64 if you got 64bit cpu, and want 64bit system, ore you have 4+GB ram]
    download cd/dvd [i suggest dvd]
    Figure out if FreeBSD going to be the only OS on HDD
    install accordingly

    and read handbook
    Installing FreeBSD

    Just forget to extract the ISO from the archive.
