In response to Sean Murphy [1]<smurphy at>:

I am going to install FreeBSD 6.2 Release on a new box but I noticed it
is now on patch 1.  Is there a way to install FreeBSD 6.2 patch 1 on a
new install without having to install 6.2 Release then updating the
source and finally doing a build/make world after installing 6.2?

It's possible to create your own install cd.  Do some googling on "make
release" for FreeBSD.

However, if it's only 1 machine, it will take the same amount of time/
effort to buildworld/buildkernel.

   Is it possible to change the tags from sysinstall and then use ftp to
   download the latest security release?
