General Installation Notes

General Installation Notes

The easiest method of installing FreeBSD 4.4, 4.6 or 4.6.2 in a virtual machine is to use the standard FreeBSD distribution CD.

Note: FreeBSD 4.6 is not supported. Use FreeBSD 4.6.2 instead. It resolves an issue that interferes with installation of FreeBSD 4.6 in a virtual machine.

Before installing the operating system, be sure that you have already created and configured a new virtual machine.

Installation Steps

Guest Screen Saver

Guest Screen Saver

On a Linux host with an XFree86 3.x X server, it is best not to run a screen saver in the guest operating system. Guest screen savers that demand a lot of processing power can cause the X server on the host to freeze.
