Hi Gary [and all]

 Or make another CD or
> CD image and compare md5sums or just diff the two CDs or CD & image.

Have tried 3 diff versions including the boot only image , and from diff

Will post orig email to freebsd-stable - any other info I should provide
them from the original email?

 freebsd-stable, and/or file a
