It's generally a good idea to ask 1 question per email, with an appropriate
subject line.  People tend to ignore posts with vague subjects, or that ask
many unrelated questions.

set to it when booting the system.  This is not a FreeBSD problem, but a
hardware problem, as I've seen the same problem with other OSes.

Well?  Is ISpell or Aspell properly configured and in your PATH?

I've always used the ftpd that ships with FreeBSD.  See 'man ftpd'
