FreeBSD "Welcome to the home page of the finstall project, accepted for Google's Summer of Code 2007. This project aims to create a user-friendly graphical installer for FreeBSD & FreeBSD-derived systems. The project should yield something usable for 7.0-RELEASE, but the intention is to keep it as a "second" installer system during 7.x, alongside sysinstall. In any case, sysinstall will be kept for architectures not supported by finstall (e.g. all except i386 and amd64)." A first version has been released.

extended partition.(1) Kept it that way until I moved
the os and Windows98 to a larger disk
.........
(1) the fourth being / (root) which shared a
"slice" with whichever of the 3 above, was not in the extended
partition. (that slice between (c:) and (d:)
at that time)
