Testing PCBSD 8-STABLE-20100524-i386 on HP Vectra VL400 1.0 GHz, 512
Mb RAM, nVidia Ti4200.

Installation went fine except for:

(1) Video Card Installation -- The installer recognized the card and
reported the correct nVidia legacy driver, but always reported that
the selection had failed.  This was true even with the 1024 x 768

(2) PBI's did not install when selected as part of the install.

(3) Downloaded PBI's would not install.  If using Dolphin, an "Open
With" selection box pops up requiring the user to associate the file
with a program.  Attempts to install the PBI through a terminal also

On the bright side, this 9 year old "weak" machine operated faster
with this version than PCBSD 8.0-Release.
