    Hi:

    Just joined the forum - very new to UNIX. I installed Release 8.2-rc2 (amd64) and learned enough about vi to add

    Code:
    gdm_enable="YES"
    gnome_enable="YES"
    and bring up the GNOME Desktop. I logout of my user account and login as root (should probably edit the sudoers file - but later). Since there doesn't seem to be any browsers in the DVD I burned I tried pkd-add - r -v firefox but the tbz package was not found. How can I add Firefox so I can start browsing in FreeBSD? Should I just have typed Firefox36 or something like that?? At this moment I'm using Ubuntu Natty in a multi boot environment but really want to learn more about FreeBSD from within that OS.

    Thank you.
