It's the installer.
Installing from FTP.
"Unable to get packages/INDEX file from slected media."
And it of course explains that it may be because the FTP mirror doesn't have the packages. Now, why in the hell ftp1.freebsd.org doesn't have the Xorg binaries I need is a mystery to me too, but I figure you know what you're doing.
The problem is that it doesn't give me any opportunity to CHANGE the ftp server, instead locking me in a loop of slow "unable to get..." dialogs.
Install FreeBSD 6.0 via FTP, try getting the Xorg Xserv and others.
Seriously guys, this is pathetic and sad. Back to linux.
