Agreed there.. far too many flavours. I settled on FreeBSD 6.1 (yeah yeah..I know it's not technically linux) but must admit a liking for dreamlinux live.

FreeBSD hates my system.
every time i try installing it the boot loader tells me it can't find the kernel. its rather irritating. and then when i try installing it on an older system i have theres always SOME problem. PC-BSD has no problems but yea...linux just works better for me.

I do feel that I must agree with the last statement about FreeBSD. It really doesn't like new hardware. Whereas it's a treat on machines in the 2-6 year old category. I also found the "kernal not found" error on a new amd64 with sata drives. Not mine and suse went on great.
I had a week of testing all the live cd's I could lay my hands on..
Results.. knoppix was a bit of a pain, but all the rest are great. Slax killbill and dreamlinux I think are the most user friendly, but for the biggest improvement in the last year the prize has to go to the puppy crew. What an excellent distro they have there now. This time last year it plain didn't work..now it's a star in every respect. Well done..top marks.

I hav absolutely no problem with FBSD at all. New system, old system -- no issues I cannot resolve.

That said;
FBSD 6.X (9 Machines)
FBSD 4.X (1 Machine)
SLES (1 Machine)
RHEL (1 Machine)
Solaris 10 (1 Machine)

so how do i fix the kernel not found. error? i dont recall which hard drive i was trying to install it on, but it might have been my 300GB seagate sata2. my other hdd is a 160GB maxtor eide. that was the only error it gave me.

and its REALLY annoying to install because you have to switch between the two disks for different packages.

The very fact that PCBSD installs (which IS FBSD) should tell you that FBSD should function. :) I can't tell you what your problem is, because you have not provided enough information.
Are you saying that when you install FBSD into a partition thus requiring installation of the boot loader, when you subsequently choose FBSD to boot into it cannot find the kernel? What was your filesystem layout? What do you mean 'switch between two disks for packages'?

My thought at the time was that the sata driver hadn't installed for some reason. Didn't have time to investigate further.
