newbie installing from dos partition

I want to install freebsd on my notebook and I'm
planning to do this by making a c:/freebsd map on my
windows98 partition and copying the files from the ftp
site to that directory. 

However, there is one complain. I only can do this by
using a ftp client which can pass through my firewall.
Because of that, the files are copied as http request
to my harddisk.

All the maps on the ftp server I fetch one by one.

My question is then, what to do with the packages map?
Do I have to fetch all the packages or do I just
simply copy the packages I want to have? But then, how
about the structure of the ftp server which has to be
the same on my harddisk. How do I put all the packages
in the appropriate maps like games, databases, editors
...and more do I build the ALL map?

Hope someone can help me
