I bought FreeBSD from your site (www.cdrom.com) & I tryed to install it
after I hade linux for about 1 year I wanted to see FreeBSD any way...
The problem is :
when the kernel (at boot time!) starts to look for hardware the screen gose blank!!
simply BLANK!. & that's it I can't do anything, I tryed to go deep & see what is the
problem, ok, I hade an old ISA Trident SVGA, I installed it & every thing went gr8!.
hmm .. I tryed almost everything (Even removing ALL the cards EXCEPT the Graphic card
& again nothing, the card is (very strangly) ATI Graphics Xpression 2DRAM, I even tryed
it with my friends computer that hade an ATI 2VRAM nothing .. .it worked gr8!
any way, I relly want to run the FreeBSD, couse I'm sick of linux, it's ok
but it's full of securety holes & bugs!, but it's not bad AT ALL!, any way
please help me out!. if you wold like me to send you any other info about my
hardware please tell me.
