Hello All,

My name is Dave Lindberg and I just bought a new AMD Anthlon machine... =
Compaq 7AP140.  Configured as: 800 Mhz AMD Anthlon, 128 MG, Mediamatic =
DVD drive, CDRW drive ?, 16 Mg nVidia TNT2 graphics card, 128 bit Sound =
Blaster audio card, Micromodem 56K modem, NIC card ?....  Do you know if =
I can run FreeBSD on my system?  I really don't know if I can run it on =
an AMD processor, people tell me I can only use an Intel chipset?  Is =
there any truth to this?

I've been out of the X window scene for a while and would like to jump =
back in. =20

I'm trying to make a dual boot system and was wondering... can I do this =
with Win 98 and FreeBSD.  Could I load FreeBSD into a partition on my =
Win 98 hard drive or would I need a new HD to load the system?  Is there =
a way to open a window in FreeBSD and to run a Win 98 application witin =
it?

If I'm asking too many questions.... please direct me to the appropriate =
web pages.

Thank you for your time!

FreeBSD friend,

Dave Lindberg  :-)
