At one point in my installation nightmare, I wanted to have FreeBSD and NetBSD installed on the same system. This turned out to be difficult because they both viewed the other's partition as part of their own space. I don't really understand all the issues yet, like: where does the BSD partition table live? Where does the BSD boot code live? I wasn't sure what catagory of thing this was. It's a bug if you can't install FreeBSD on the same system as NetBSD or 386BSD. It's just a support question if you can and I haven't figured out how yet. Fix: I may have a workaround -- using Linux's fdisk (it will do anything), change one of the BSD's slice types to something else while installing the other. I'm not sure if this will work though.

State Changed From-To: open->closed The new install should DTRT in 2.1 and later.
