Hello

Im new to this list and new to freebsd, actually i havent installed it
yet. The thing is i have to use PXE to install it, and there is NO
floppy,NO cdrom or VGA on this computer.

It's a motorola 5360.

Its capable of pxebooting, (im from the linux world) hda is a 16M cf Hdb
is a standard harddrive. User interface is a serialport, running
@38400,8n1. NIC is a eepro100

The computer is currently installed with linux, but since i have many
computers like this one, i thought about migrating into freebsd.

i saw this page http://matt.simerson.net/computing/freebsd.netboot.shtml
it gave me some hints, but since i dont have freebsd on the install
server i have problem. install server i also a cpn5360 and has debian
running as OS. 
So when i came to the part when i need a kernel... im stuck.
The loader seem's to be up and runnig, because it tells med it needs a
kernel.


Please help :)

Lars
