It would be nice if you'd send plain text messages. We're even considering rejecting other content types, because it means that messages appended by the mailer get lost. For example, at the end of this message you'll see information about how to unsubscribe. That's missing from your messages.
Also, I find your mail format very difficult to follow. See the URL above for what to do about that. I've tried to rearrange things the way it probably happened.
let me state once more that i have the book and am reading it! i brought the 10cd power-pak. i like the manual. it was because of the manual that i brought the power-pak. so much for the guy who said i was lazy for not reading. if i didn't want to read, and didn't think that i should have to, i wouldn't have brought the book. i tried to download the freebsd kernel from the web. but i could make heads or tails of it. i was expecting to find the kernel to be one contiguous unit as it is in linux. now maybe it is. but what i found was kernel modules as they would appear in linux after the kernel and it's components had been compiled. i didn't find any file of the size that i expected the kernel to be (17-21MB's for linux). it was because of this recognition, that i was erroneously applying concepts from one system to another, that i chose to admit that i don't know what i am doing. it is also because of this that i am approaching this (installation) with great trepidation.
I don't really understand this. You have the book, you've read it, but what you're describing here is different from anything in the book.

After you install, the kld should be in /modules/vinum.ko. According what I just read, you should not even have to explicitly load the module. When you try to use vinum, it will automatically be loaded. You do not have to do anything special to install the kld. Just install the OS, and you will be able to run vinum.
Yes, this is correct.
thank you. the reason why i did not proceed, was that with linux, if you change the definition of the partition type, after it's initial declaration, you inevitably erase all the data on the partition.
I'm not sure that this is true even in Linux. It isn't in FreeBSD, but since it has nothing to do with the text above, I wonder whether you've misunderstood something, or whether we're just having difficult communicating.
in linux, my system (kernel) is VALHALA, my volume group was `ODIN'. the physical volumes were `THOR'. such that the labels went like this;
/dev/ODIN/THOR01, /THOR02, /THOR03, etc.
This doesn't look like any Linux I've seen. Are you confusing kernels and root file systems?
that was very simple and straight-forward. it didn't require a math degree to interpret this. it is done at the time of the initial installation. you did not first load (any) data on the partitions and then go back and relabel them, for the very reasons already stated above. if freebsd is different, great! but i have not read where that is the case. and it would not be ligitimate for me to assume so. in fact, i assume the worst, and expect it.
I really have the feeling that I'm don't understand what you say. Could you please start again, explain clearly and concisely what you want to do, and what your concerns are?
