I always thought that FreeBSD installation shouldn't be a problem in general, but I wasn't really sure if a laptop would be the best choice to give it a try for the very first time. I have been proven wrong. The installation went absolutely fine, no hitches. Usual suspects, like the right screen resolution, touchpad, etc. worked straight out of the box. Broadcom ethernet card worked right. The only things that I had to do, was to load snd, and load the appropriate driver for wireless access. Luckily the Lenovo3000N200 model that I have uses Intel3945 and FreeBSD7.1 has a driver. Now wireless works perfectly and wpa-psk security is also enable

So I removed Lunar Linux on my Lenovo laptop yesterday, because of some build problems. I had spent the whole weekend configuring the laptop and everything went fine, until I messed up some user rights issue, and after a reboot, couldn't login again. So I loaded FreeBSD on it yesterday, and most of the things are workin fine. One thing I am planning to get configured is the wireless, and then my laptop is perfect. I also have a large partition for lunar, which I am gonna install over the coming weekend!

Excited!

Got a brand new Lenovo laptop for a bargain price from a friend of mine this evening. Have been installing lunar Linux on it, since an hour or so. So far, so good! Building theedge right now! :D
