Sounds unrelated to the image itself.

miniinst.iso is everything in the "base system" without any packages
(except Perl), but with the ports tree. I am not sure what bootonly.iso
lacks that miniinst.iso has (almost certainly the ports tree).
If you have broadband, I suggest using the miniinst.iso and either
installing packages via FTP with /stand/sysinstall or building
everything from ports. Since you are new at this: don't forget to CVSup
your ports tree after you install. Also, if I were you, I would install
portupgrade and always use portupgrade/portinstall instead of manually
