Hi Nikola,

Thank you for your tips. I will download the FreeSBIE live CD tomorrow 
and follow it up with your suggestions.

One thing I find FreeBSD very fussy and sensitive in comparison to Linux 
OSes is that whenever there is an power outage, something wrong is bound 
to happen. Maybe, it was made to happen this way but living in here over 
the other side of the world, we do have to face power outages despite 
our best efforts.

Thanking you...
