Quad OS failure

[ #6544 ]
I re-partitioned my hard drive this weekend, with the notion of adding FreeBSD to my collection o' operating systems. BeOS and Linux were re-installed on logical partitions without a hitch. FreeBSD was another story.

Apparently I forgot to RTFM. If I had, I would have realized that FreeBSD can only be installed on a primary partition, and not a logical one. No offense to the BSD fans out there, but that is just effing lame (as is the installer itself - good grief). Very MS like, if you ask me.

Well, anyway, I still have my 12GB laying around inside the case without a power cable. Maybe I'll just fire that up instead.
