If you are using CD roms for the install, just go to fireup
/stand/sysinstall and follow the menus. I would suggest the ports system.
Check it http://freebsd.org/ports
You can also ftp to ftp.freebsd.org and go to /pub/FreeBSD/ports/packages
and download the compiled packages, and install them with pkg_add.
