FreeBSD on Soekris
I've been reading David Courtney's Soekris guide. It's incredibly detailed and explains how to install FreeBSD 4.9 and FreeBSD 5.2.1 onto the Soekris net4801. I previously described my experiences with the Soekris, but David's document addresses issues I hadn't considered. For example, he discusses the Soekris BIOS and shows how to navigate it. His setup uses PXE and he installs the OS onto a 2.5 inch laptop hard drive rather than a CF card.
