19: Network Configuration menu Your Host name is a unique name for your computer. It might be something like "Webserver" or "test". It should be all one word. The Domain name is the domain your computer is a part of. com/. If you don't have a local domain name, ask your network administrator. Earlier in the install I suggested that you get an IP address, netmask, default gateway, and nameserver IP address from your network administrator. Enter this information here. Even if DHCP configuration works, you will still need to set your Host name and Domain name.
Extra swap won't hurt, mind you, and disk space is very cheap these days. If you really need your swap, you'll have it. If you find you're continually using swap, you'll want to buy more RAM anyway. Once you decide how much swap space to allocate, create a partition by pressing C. Enter the size you want—for example, for a 1,000MB swap partition you would enter 1000m. When the installer asks if you want to create a swap partition or a filesystem, choose "Swap". /var, /usr, and /home The next step is to create the /var partition, which holds rapidly changing data, such as log files, databases, mail spools, and the like.
Here are some basic recommendations. Processor Your brand of processor is really irrelevant to FreeBSD; FreeBSD won't care if you're running an Intel, AMD, IBM, or Cyrix CPU. It probes the CPU on booting, and uses whatever chip features it recognizes. I've run effective servers on 486 machines before—in fact, I've filled a T1 Internet circuit with a 486. However, I would still recommend that you get a Pentium or faster CPU. Some of the demonstrations in this book take less than an hour on my twin 1 GHz Pentium system, but take almost three days on my ancient 25 MHz 486.
