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 enabled. Now I should buy a Beastie plush to sit right alongside my rockhopper penguin plush and the normal penguin plush. :D

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!

Been trying to find a bug in my program since last weekend, and still unsuccessful! :( But I guess it might be a feature after all! May be the method I am using is not the best one to treat my model. Will see how that works out in the coming few days!
