Sorry for the inconvenience.  Chance of typos in templates, the navigation header should be functional for most versions of the handbook.
Potential remains for unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
Notice will be up until above verified and no other troubles found from recent modifications.

I noticed that the FreeBSD boot loader can recognize the USB flash drive. I have two pc-bsd partitions on the same drive that are bootable (listed at F1 and F2). When I plugged my little usb drive in, that one was listed underneath as F5. I'm not sure why it used F5 instead of F3 or F4.. but this is a further option than to specifically set the bios to boot from the usb (however boot capability may need to be enabled from bios). My bios has a setting to allow USB storage devices. --Tigersharke 11:18, 20 January 2011 (PST)
