VMWare: Operating system: Install: FreeBSD: How install FreeBSD v4.8 
on VMWare v4.0.5 for Windows?
---
Steps: Overview:
 1. -Possibly download your FreeBSD CDs at
      http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-
1/books/handbook/mirrors.html
 2. -Start VMWare
 3. -Create a new virtual machine
     (menu 'File'->'New'->'Virtual machine')
 4. -Choose default 'Typical'
 5. -Choose 'FreeBSD'
 6. -Give it a descriptive name
     (e.g. 'FreeBSD v4.8 - English')
 7. -Use bridged networking
 8. -Possibly reduce the assigned memory
     to e.g. 64 megabyte (or else it
     might slow or freeze your Microsoft Windows XP
     with 256 megabyte RAM)
     (select from menu option 'Edit'->
      'Virtual machine settings'->tab 'Hardware'->
      select from list 'Memory', change
      'Guest size(MB) to e.g. 64,
       click button 'OK')
 9. -If you downloaded the CDs, and have them
     only as a file, inform VMWare about that.
     (select from menu option 'Edit'->
      'Virtual machine settings'->tab 'Hardware'->
      select from list 'CD-ROM 1',
      enable radio button 'Use ISO image',
      -click button 'Browse', goto location
      of your .iso file
      (choose e.g. 4.8-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso),
      click button 'Open', click button 'OK')
10. -Start the virtual machine
11. -This will start the installation of FreeBSD
12. -Some initial installation
13. -FreeBSD reboots
14. -Press <ENTER> to accept default
     (=do not configure kernel)
15. -Choose 'Standard installation' (recommended)
16. -'OK'
17. -Select 'A' entire disk
18. -Select 'Q' to quit
19. -Select 'Install the FreeBSD Boot manager'
20. -'OK'
21. -Press 'C'reate to create the partition (e.g. 4095 MB)
22. -'OK'
23. -Select 'A' (Autodefaults for all)
24. -Select 'Q' (Finish)
25. -Select 'A' to install all
26. -Select '1' to install from a FreeBSD CDROM
27. -Choose 'Y'es to start the formatting
28. -After some time you should see
     'All File information written successfully'
29. -It will now start to extract the packages
     from CD to your VMWare disk
     So you should see e.g. 'Extracting bin into / directory ...'
     and so on...
30. 'OK' at 'Congratulations! You have now FreeBSD installed
    on your system.
    You will now move on to the final configuration
    questions.
    For any option you do not wish to configure,
    simply select no.
    If you wish to re-enter this utility after the system
    is up, you may do so by typing
     /stand/sysinstall
31. 'Yes' to configure ethernet network card
32. I chose 'Cancel' to skip ppp
33. I chose 'N'o to let this machine function as network gateway
34. I chose 'N'o to configure inetd
35. I chose 'Y'es for anonymous ftp access
36. 'Yes' for user information requested
37. tab to 'OK'
38. 'Yes' for anonymous FTP users welcome message
39. Type your message
40. <ESCAPE> to quit
41. 'a' to save your text
42. 'No' to configure this machine as NFS server
43. 'No' to configure this machine as NFS client
44. 'No' for moderate security profile
     Sendmail and sshd have been enabled, secure
     levels are disabled and NFS server settings
     have been left intact.
     To change any of these settings later, edit
      /etc/rc.conf
45. 'OK'
46. 'N'o for customize system console settings
47. 'Y'es for set time zone
48. 'N'o for CMOS clock set to UTC
49. Choose your continent
50. Choose your country
51. 'Y'es for proposed time format
52. 'Y'es for enable Linux binary compatibility
53. Now message shown on screen
    'Adding packages/All/linux_base-7.1_2.tgz from acd0c'
54. I chose 'N'o when asked if non-USB mouse attached
55. 'Y'es to configure X server
56. I chose '2' xf86cfg (fully graphical XFree86
    configuration tool)
57. 'Y'es for access mouse
58. Test and run the mouse
59. It worked OK with the mouse, so I pressed 'OK'
60. 'OK' to return to previous menu
61. -The FreeBSD reboots
62. -It shows a very nice graphical screen
     'xf86cfg'
63. I chose 'Quit'
64. 'Y'es to write the files to to XSB
    'XFree86'
65. Now I got a black screen
66. I rebooted, gave VMWare focus by clicking on the
    window, then pressed <F1> followed by <ENTER>
    to continue
67. Login as root
      su
      <your root password>
    (or just type 'root', then press <ENTER>)
68. You see a screen similar to the following:

69. Trouble shooting:
I had to check the mouse settings,
as the mouse was not detected, so after
login I typed the command
 1. /stand/sysinstall
 2. I chose 'Configure'
 3. 'Mouse' to configure your mouse
 4, It showed the screen:
+-----------------------------------------------------------------+
|    ------ Please configure your mouse ------------------------- |
|                                                                 |
|    You can cut and paste text in the text console by running the|
|    mouse daemon.                                                |
|                                                                 |
|    Specify a port and a protocol type of your mouse and         |
|    enable the mouse daemon.                                     |
|                                                                 |
|    If you do not want this feature, select 6 to                 |
|    disable the daemon.                                          |

|    Once you have enabled the mouse daemon, you can specify      |

+-----------------------------------------------------------------+
 5. I chose the default values for the options:
     3. auto
     4. PS/2
     5. and filled in nothing in the emulate buttons option.
    Then 2 to test the mouse, which worked OK now.
    Then exit to goto to previous menu, again
    exit, and <TAB> <OK> to return to the command line.

70. Possibly set a password for root, by typing
     passwd
    then supplying your new password twice.

71. To install VMWare tools
    I restarted (to go to text mode), by typing
     shutdown -r now
72.
    (select from menu option 'File'->'Install
     VMWare tools')
73. Install VMWare tools
