    OpenBSD install help

    Im kind of new to the linux platform but really want to learn how to do this install and Im not sure where to post this but here i go.

    Is there a big different between OpenBSD 4.2 and 4.3? What are the pre-install steps in getting this install onto my server that will be hosting games. What kernal should i be using to install for this purpose? Is there any instructions on how to complete this task? Where can i get an offical copy of this program? Can I setup a Raid 1 using sas, scsi, or sata drives?

    If this ends up being more harder than what is, maybe someone in my area (SJ,CA) could help me out. Just send me an email at Fibernetserver |at| Gmail |dot| Com.

    Thanks for any info you can provide.

    1. What's new in OpenBSD 4.3

    Pre-install and install checklist are here. You can use GENERIC or GENERIC.MP depending on whether you have single or multiple processors on your machine.

    All info about software RAID is here. If you provide RAID via hardware, there is no need to use the link above as it will be transparent to the OS..
