The OS tasks me

[ #6567 ]
I decided to keep at it with regards to getting FreeBSD installed on my system. I figured out how to create a second primary partition, though it's a risky operation with Windows 98, at least according to the software I was using. So, I'd have to make sure I changed the FS type on the new partition before rebooting into Windows.

My first attempt failed, mainly because I got confused as to which point in the installation process I should be creating a slice. I was getting an error message that said "partition too big?".

After hanging around the #freebsd chat for a bit and getting a couple of pointers, I tried again. I futzed around with slice sizes for a short time before I finally got it the way I wanted, and ultimately installed it. Unfortunately, when I selected FreeBSD via the BeOS bootloader, it just hung.

So I tried *again*, except this time it froze in the middle the software installation on a package called cvsupit, or something like that.

I'll try yet again tonight and go with fewer software packages.
