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
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
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.
The new install should DTRT in 2.1 and later.
