FreeBSD 8.0 boots on a Toshiba Libretto 70CT


FreeBSD running on my Libretto 70CT

And it works! Yays! ^_^ I'll be detailing how on Sunday when I have more time, suffice to say it was far more complex and time consuming than I imagined it would be. The Windows 95 partition has also been preserved, albeit in a smaller partition.

It may be a nerdy thing to admit, but working on puzzles like this and solving them is just about the greatest feeling in the world. ^_^
