I installed the /bin distribution from my harddisk at the very first
time when I installed freebsd. I chose the installed via dos partition
method and the installation program automatically found the /bin directory
in my dos partition and installed this bin distribution. Now my question is
how can I install other distribution like the /crypto distribution or the
/games distribution / port which I do have them downloaded already from the
FreeBsd ftp site in my dos partitition side of my hard disk. any help will
