thanks Kent,

I understand what I need to do now. 
well my /usr/ports have teh 4.3.0 version now.  so I dont know how I can
install 4.2 core distribution

also I am cvsup'ing the stable files every night. 

how can I guarantee that I am receiving the 4.9-stable files?

this is the entry I am using:

--- snip ---
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4
--- snip ---

should that work - how can I verify that its the 4.9 kernel and system files I
am receiving?

thanks in advance,

- Noah
