Hi all ,

To install Gnome Desktop  environment  for  FreeBSD -6.2 , which method is 
most suitable and less time consumable ,

1   .   I m plannig to do a                      portinstall  
/usr/ports/x11/gnome2   (how much time it will take on a normal p4 , 512 DDR 
  machine   ?  )  I heard  it will take 3 days or more is it ?

2 .  is ther any speedy way to install  Gnome desktop   other than this  ?  
if so which is that method ? how much time will it take ?

3 . In FreeBSdD6.2 release , what the role of the    ISO image  Disk No 2 ? 
I finished my installation with 6.2 ISO image disk 1 , whats more in disk 2 
, while installation its is not asking Disc2, is it not necessary   ?

pls give your comments on these  matters ..It will hep me a lot

thanks in advance
