Hi, Kris:

Thank you for your reply. I will (have to) handle the difficulty to build 
the CDs for my installation. I think the hardest thing is to split the 
package on 2 CDs, in one CD no package depends on the packages on the other 
CD. Whatever, I wish the next item to be removed from FTP site would not 
packages. I can understand the freebsd project situ. I really appreciate 
everyone's effort on the great system. I have used my affordable way to 
support my lovely system each half year (I am only university student). 
Hope I can do more later. Thank you all of you.

Best regards,
