 PCBSD is fabulous but there are various install Bugs to mention.

 1) When the installer gets stuck in an error it states that it will send
 an email report summary. This email sender appears to work but it never
 actually sends anything back to my email address. Check it out - does it
 send anything back to yourselves?

 2) The certificate for this Trac site is not certified, apparently. Would
 be good to get this to be accepted by FireFox. It looks bad
 for newcomers.

 3) The 32 Bit (x86) installer is not robust like the 64 bit one is. On
 both BSD-8 Beta and the RC1, the x86 installer will not work on my HP
 "Pavilion" A410n, 2.8 Ghz, single processor. It gets every error on the
 way through and I can correct some of them.

 The PCBSD x86 installer finally always halts at an "un-demountable" point,
 something to do with the disk-drive ?

 I instead run the new Linux Mint 8 RC1 on it and that installer works fast
 and perfectly, with no intervention, sticking or halting. It adjusts
 itself on the way through, whereas the PCBSD x86 installer gets stuck and
 waits for user input.

 Anyways, the Mint-8 FluxBox RC1 installer is worth checking out - it's a
 winner !

 But the PCBSD-8 64 bit installer works perfectly too, on my
 other HP, the 64 bit dual core AMD.

 So thats a mystery - - -

 Thanks & good luck with all of this.

 Ken Gibbs
