You did, indeed.  Welcome.

The handbook is mostly, if not completely relevant to 4.5, but I would
suggest reading Appendix A of the handbook, esp. A.5, Using CVSup.


You can install cvsup from the cds you bought, then use it to update
your source tree and ports (third-party software) collection.  That'll
enable you to upgrade FreeBSD to a more recent version, which will be
a good experience for you, and is a good idea, as 4.5 is rather old
now, and there have been many improvements to the 4.x branch since

Good luck.
