For local installations of FreeBSD via FTP, I tried to setup a local FTP 
mirror using the preferred method as described in section 3.1.3 of the 
following :-

However, I found that the refused to accept cvsup 
connection. Moreover, I found that CD-ROM contents were different from 
what was found on the FTP website and could not simply copy the CD-ROM 
content to a local FTP server.

I hope someone could help to advise an efficient method to setup a local 
FTP server for easier installation, rather than changing CD-ROMs many 
many times for one installation.

Thank you,   John Mok
