Logging into a 386 BSD system
|Creator:||CSRG, University of California, Berkeley|
|Architecture:||386 theoretically portable|
|Current Version:||0.1 (1992)|
386 BSD was the first time that the Net/2 project was put into a functional release onto commodity hardware, and into the public under the BSD license. This is the starting point for both NetBSD & FreeBSD. While 386 BSD may be of historical significance, it's not up to the challenge of day to day usage.
Where can I get a copy
At the moment the only known place to get a full copy is here: http://www.oldlinux.org/Linux.old/distributions/386BSD/
How do I get this to run?!
386 BSD is difficult to install on real hardware, and emulated hardware is difficult as well. As of now the only known emulator that can run 386 BSD is Bochs 2.4. I'm currently having some issues with it's disktab structure as it keeps placing the swap partition starting at 0 and overwriting itself.
Not terribly much, unpacking the distro tends to corrupt the disk.
