Not very easy. I can't expect the facility to test for me since they
don't know the first thing about FreeBSD and it would be time consuming
to do remotely. And I am over 1500 miles away.

I feel comfortable with 5.4-RELEASE. I have taught over 14 classes
covering FreeBSD 4.x through 5.x and don't have opportunity to test in
most cases. A few times, I have flown in earlier day and visit classroom
and in a few cases companies/students have tested on their hardware ahead
of time.
