I have intalled Fbsd from floppies and via ftp, (over my broadband =
connection) but it will not boot from the harddrive, it keeps wanting =
the floppies. The pc is a P100 with 32MB ram and a 1038MB Hdd. I did try =
installing from a CD that I'd used sucessfuly before, (on a later pc) =
but that fails to find the kernel on the cd.

Can anyone help. I did hear that FreeBSD will run in 16MB on a very =
small disk, is this true?

Regards

Dan
