the BSD's are quite different from linux. each one isn't the same code, but a different installer and packaging system (oversimplification, so sue me). FreeBSD i found to be as easy to use as Debian. you might give that one a try, since NetBSD's main goal is porting to as many platforms as possible.
: As a diversion I've been playing around with NetBSD-
: 1.5.2 on my old PC. I'm finding the installation and
: configuration quite a bit different (ie difficult)
: compared to most Linux distros and am wondering if any
: of you Rogues have any experience with this. BTW, I've
: got the latest install + applications CDs for NetBSD
: and FreeBSD - if anyone is interested, I'll bring them
: to the next meeting.
