there are several posibilities:

a) could you extract the hard disk from the second computer and
install it in the first one?

If you can, do it and repeat the installation.  The second computer
surely will work.

b) with the first computer download the 4.8-RELEASE ISO image, burn it
in a CD and use it to install FreeBSD in the second one.

c) buy the distribution CDs from FreeBSD Mall.  They are not expensive.
If you subscribe [to get them each time they are released], they are
even cheaper.
