FreeBSD/i386 Project


This page contains information about the FreeBSD/i386 platform. This architecture supports the largest variety of CPUs since most home users purchase these machines. If you have a machine from any large PC company (such as Dell™, HP, or eMachines®) chances are that you have either an AMD™ or Intel® CPU and thus fall into this category.
