they go in /usr/ports/distfiles
use cvsupit (/usr/ports/net/cvsupit) to update ALL for 5.0-CURRENT.
when updating, do a portupgrade -rRa (you have to install portupgrade from
ports) to update all your progs...
For fresh OS, read /usr/src/UPDATING but, in brief:
make buildworld KERNCONF=YOURKERNELFILE
make buildkernal KERNCONF=YOURKERNELFILE
make installkernal KERNCONF=YOURKERNELFILE
reboot to single user mode (hit key at prompt, type boot -s)
mount -u /
make installworld KERNCONF=YOURKERNELFILE
But please read the file mentioned above first...
