How to setup FreeBSD on dedicated server without KVM?
I looking for a way to setup FreeBSD 7.2 amd64 on my dedicated server remotely. There is only problem I havnt access to KVM, but I have access to rescue system (linux image loaded into memory of the server, which enables me to perform any actions with help of linux tools on hard drive, it's easy to install any linux distro on the server - just format hdd and load files of OS, but I really dont know how to install FreeBSD by this way).
So, maybe someone can help me? If you have any tools for FreeBSD install or special images of it - please, share it for me.
You can then slice and dice the disk as you like, install boot code, set swap,
etc, and can either do minimal install over ftp using sysinstall, or you can
install from previous disk dumps taken from another live system elsewhere - as
long as you sort out any gotchas, like necessary edits to rc.conf, resolv.conf
(IP address, netmask, DNS server, interface, default route etc ..) and fstab.
