I take it that my FreeBSD system is not going to last too long so I need to start moving faster and document my system setup, just in case my Harddrives “kick the bucket.” I have made many modifications to the system since I installed FreeBSD 4.9-Release a week after it came out. I know pretty soon I may be upgrading to the 5.0-Release once it becomes stable, but for now lets get to documentating and backing up important system configuration files.

System Information
I have a custom build machine that houses the following components inside of a Antec PLUS1080AMG Metallic Gray SOHO file server.

RAM: Real Memory = 536870912 (524288K bytes), aka 512MB.

Hard Drives:

  • ad0: 57241MB [116301/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA33
  • ad1: 114473MB [232581/16/63] at ata0-slave UDMA33
  • ad6: 76319MB [155061/16/63] at ata3-master UDMA100

I/O Media:

  • acd0: DVD-ROM
  • acd1: CD-RW
  • sbc1: Sound Card
  • fdc0: Floppy

System Tuning

  • Partitioning
  • I have one hard drive that I dedicate espicially to FreeBSD, and here is the modified output from fstab and mount:

Device Mountpoint Size
/dev/ad6s1b none
/dev/ad6s1h none
/dev/ad6s1a / 500 Megabytes
/dev/ad6s1d /home 4.0 Gigabytes

/dev/ad6s1g /usr 33 Gigabytes
/dev/ad6s1e /var 400 Megabytes
