rw support from linux and to some linux fs types would be a feature request from a spoiled brat like me.

The FreeBSD livefs cd has been no use to me yet. I might be very wrong, but it seems to be a slimmed down install cd1 and seems to provide nothing that cant be found on the install cd. I just end up in sysinstall and cannot get out or boot the installed system. I went ahead and tried to make a floppy with boot1 and boot2 on it. I could not find exact info on how to accomplish it. Since FreeSBIE didn't provide a Swedish keymap, I had no "=" and could not use dd. I did it in linux, mounted the slash partition and
dd if=/boot/boot1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 count=1
dd if=/boot/boot2 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 seek=1
Anyway: booting from the floppy seems to have written to the mbr and now I have made my Archlinux partition unbootable, unmountable and maybe unrecoverable. No biggie, This machine is for learning. So: Don't try this at home

(I really think and type to slow for the logout timeout.)
