Well, that's what I thought, I just wanted to be sure. I've done that once before. As I recall, there was a very long string of questions I had to answer at one point. I pretty much just told the system not to change things, go with defaults, etc. That's the safest bet, right? This is similar to reinstalling Windoze on top of an existing installation, right?

What are you trying to do? You could always go to /usr/src and do a
make buildworld, which would rebuild the entire FreeBSD userland.
Ports can be rebuilt, too, for example by doing a portupgrade -afk
