The iso's are never remade after the initial.  If its drastically 
broken, they might pull it from distribution, but other than that no.

Once you install from the ISO, you'll need to update via freebsd-update, 
or /usr/src, or whatever else you might be thinking of. (just make sure 
to use RELENG_6 tag)

Work like you don't need the money,
love like you'll never get hurt,
and dance like nobody's watching.
