refers to HARDWARE.TXT without providing a link to the file. The people
who most need to know about hardware support often don't have the file
on their systems or on a CD-ROM or know how to find it at freebsd.org.
Add a link to the file.
This is a lot harder than it sounds. The shortest way I can describe
the problem is that the Handbook has to cover multiple versions of
FreeBSD, each of which is available for multiple architectures. There
is no *one* HARDWARE.TXT file that we can point to. While this is a
good idea, I don't think it's practical.
hardware.txt and hardware.html live on the top-level directory of the
CDROMs and are linked from the main www.FreeBSD.org page. They're also
viewable in sysinstall (should someone succeed in booting the install
media). If someone can't find it from one of those places, I don't
know what else we can do for them.
