I need to know if the current ports collection http://openbsd.org/52.html on these Cd's or the download are compatible with this system.

1.1 Ghz Pentium3 CPU
256 MB RAM
12 GB Hardrive, 1/2 is Windows XP Pro.

Im mainly interested in a office suite and I need to make a decision
by either tomorrow or Monday about a RAM upgrade if needed or purchase
of more cheap Fedora CD's. And please let me know what office suite is
recommended as I have not unarchived the source files yet.

It's all in the kernel.

My question about OpenBSD 5.2 RAM requirement for the ports has
not been answered.

I wrote this on paper prior to typing the document. It's not the
complete verbatim output and it won't print screen at this point.
Im using the fdisk within OpenBSD and the Shell option for the
install.

Does the Extended LBA look right, noting the numbers are exact from
the output? Is this what they are referring to as partition overlap?

Work has been proceeding in order to bring perfection to the crudely conceived idea of a machine that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Such a machine is the "Turbo-Encabulator."

The original machine had a base-plate of prefabulated amulite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the pentametric fan. The main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots in the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a nonreversible trem'e pipe to the differential girdlespring on the 'up' end of the grammeters.
Forty-one manestically spaced grouting brushes were arranged to feed into the rotor slipstream a mixture of high S-value phenylhydrobenzamine and 5% reminative tetryliodohexamine. Both of these liquids have specific pericosities given by P = 2.5C.n^6-7 where n is the diathetical evolute of retrograde temperature phase disposition and C is Cholmondeley's annular grillage coefficient. Initially, n was measured with the aid of a metapolar refractive pilfrometer, but up to the present date nothing has been found to equal the transcendental hopper dadoscope. Undoubtedly, the turbo-encabulator has now reached a very high level of technical development. It has been successfully used for operating nofer trunnions. In addition, whenever a barescent skor motion is required, it may be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocating dingle arm to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.

That machine reads to be engineering fiction to begin with.

Something above tells me FIPS maybe involved and the partitioning
is not quite right.

The above looks to be more correct.

I used the ntrw tool from OpenBSD after I was finally able to
locate 3.25" floppies for purchase 1 of which is now a OpenBSD
boot disk with fdisk much more complete than Microsoft.

Dude,

Most people use a usb flash drive these days.

What happened to you, anyway?

crock,
My IBM lap top BIOS could be set to boot from USB but
not all would boot.

This DELL BIOS boots from main disk, floppy, CD ROM or network.
It reads and writes USB disk but I use pcmcia cards for wireless,
and its BIOS does not boot USB.

Computer Science today still starts teaching binary math and usage
of compliment using 3 bit numbers. The reason being is that learning
excess 127 1'st would be like trying to learn to run before learning
to walk. Also many want to burn to CD or USB but waste time and money
prior to checking permission bits on folders to convert to iso image.
Either way I now have fdisk on floppy, CD ROM, and its ready to be
burnt to USB on this computer from this computer from the CD ROM
contents now residing on this computer.

Malemute this is from floppy boot dmesg | more noting it did not give
the error after the 1'st main disk install.
ppb1 at pci0 dev 30 function 0 "Intel 82801 RAM Hub-to-PCI rev 0x03
pci2 at ppb1 bus2
mem address conflict 0X10000000/0X100
mem address conflict 0X10000000/0X100
ESS Maestro 3" rev 0X10 at pci2 dev3 function 0 not configured
//not configured
//not configured
//not configured
etc.
Was Xor swap used for the corrections?
