Well, you could start at the top of page 94:

  It's possible that the CD set you get will not include
  instant-workstation.  That's not such a problem: you just install
  the individual ports from this list.  You can also do this if you
  don't like the list of ports.

It's difficult to coordinate the production of a book (every year or
two, by one publisher) with the distributions (every 4 months, by a
different group of people).  That's your problem here.

To install instant-workstation directly, connect to the Net and enter:

  # cd /usr/ports/misc/instant-workstation
  # make install
