Hmmm... you should give DesktopBSD a try. I have the same box from Dell and it works just fine for me. The only problem I have is getting flashplayer9 working properly on any browsers.


I'd try DesktopBSD, but I don't plan on doing anything remotely desktop-oriented with the machine—and I'm really quite interested in some of DragonFly's features (vkernels, jails with multiple IP address and IPv6 support, etc).

I should say, incidentally, I'm really liking DragonFly so far: the lack of on-board ethernet or DVD-RW aren't deal-breakers for me at all (both will get supported in a later release, I'm fairly sure, and I don't need either of them just now).

I understand... I just changed out NetBSD to try DesktopBSD to see what's it all about, I'm going to keep it for a while and switch to OpenBSD when 4.2 is officially released. Hope everything goes well for you.
