Sure :cheers: , BSD is one of the most "obscure" (actually "less talked about") os, it would be nice to have something about it. ;)

If could write a small guide for other people to understand how to use it from USB media, it would be a good thing.

May I point out that OP in the title thread wrote:

I know bsd...


and actually posted:

I would assume :merc: that he already knows projects like Frenzy and how to make a BSD boot disk or install....:cheers:

I've been building FreeBSD systems since freebsd-0.9 (now working with 8.0-RELEASE)...

(owned/built/operated an ISP business for 7 years)...

Have made a few flavors of picobsd and freesbie for cd booting...

Now working on using usb flash drives since most computers now have a front panel usb port...

My main focus on this build is for a universal-discovery front end for various configurations and toolsets desired to be run...

(You might only want to boot to a console to use text based tools, or boot into a full xwindow environment. Also, the base partition will be dos/win32 ala FAT/NTFS for tools/apps for use when NOT booting at a winbloz workstation.)...

I started this thread to gain input on what people want/need/"would like 2 see"...

(the doc tree will be xml/xhtml/html based, including the build tree)...

thanx...

william...

Thank you. You are correct...

Almost half of my consulting income went INTO the ISP, (and LOTZ of time)...

But it was intensely educational...

(people can do the strangest things :-)...

back on topic...

ref: post above about a "small guide"

Ummm... NO... I believe in FULL documentation (if for nobody else, then just me)...

(yes, there will "cheat sheets", but only AFTER docsRdone (tm - sic :-) )...

desire-of-creating-topic: INPUT (#5 need-input :-)...

PLEASE (if ya can manage), speak up with your wishes/desires/needs/ideas...

INCLUDE: your idea of where your input fits...

(do you NEED it, REQUIRE it, WANT it, or just have a thought)...

all input welcome...

oh yes...

i believe on open source software, and open documentation...

although all my builds include full docs/sources, including complete build-maps,
i do NOT promise NOT to sell my build on usb drives for the lame &/or lazy...

(i like my beer :-)...

Great! Selling your work is part of what free software is all about! Free as in freedom, not beer, except your beer!!!
