Impossible. There is no environment yet.
An attempt to install FreeBSD 7.2 Release via bootonly CD image leads to nowhere. The network is ok, DHCP configuration is successful, but absolutely all efforts to connect anywhere to start installation are a failure with a message: "Couldn't open FTP connection to ftp.<lt|whatever>.freebsd.org: connection in wrong state."

Active FTP, passive FTP, FTP over HTTP proxy give the same -- nothing.
Just try to install via network.
