Could you please wrap your lines before 80 columns. Also, these
questions probably belong in freebsd-questions rather than here.

Is this the internal modem or an external modem? What error are you
getting. I suspect the internal modem is a winmodem and is not
supported by FreeBSD.

You have two options for ports:
a) Compile the ports yourself - which will automatically download distfiles.
b) Download pre-compiled binary packages and just install them.
A number of packages are available on the installation CDs or can
be downloaded from various FTP servers.

This should work. If I understand you correctly, when you boot with
the stick inserted, it is detected correctly but if you remove it and
then re-insert it, it's not detected. Could you please post the
relevant sections of /var/log/messages showing the initial da1 probe
messages, when you remove it and when you re-insert it.
