Missing Floppy?
« on: October 18, 2006, 08:28:34 am »
Hi all,

I was just looking at the minimum hardware requirements for the LiveCD when I noticed that it only states, "LiveCD:USB Keychain for configuration storage." However under the Download pfsense page, it says, "If you plan on using a USB keychain or floppy, etc for LiveCD configuration storage..." Now I don't mean to nitpick but if the floppy option is still viable, could it be added under the minimum requirements?  I just don't want anyone to overlook such a great project if they wanted to use the cd/floppy configuration.  I hope this is helpful.

Keep up the great work!!!

Either will work.  Format the floppy or usb keychain as msdos.

However, I really don't suggest using a floppy.  But if you insist atleast backup the configuration often, beacuse when that floppy finally dies, you will happy you did  :D
