FTP installation problem.

I was planning stepping over from Linux to BSD. I trying to install FreeBSD
using the minimal boot cd over FTP. In the installation menu I select that I
do not wish to use IPv6, and that I do wish to use DHCP. I sure I have
selected the correct Network card. Although after this my DHCP settings have
bin found correctly the installation program reports me that it cannot
resolve the name of the server (I ve tried more than one)

I did not find anything special on the second console nor scrolling up with
scroll lock. My internet connection is working.

Does anybody have a solution to my problem?

Thank you,

P.S. is there a way to go to a console during installation to tweak some
settings like I used doing in Archlinux? Maybe then I can get the connection
working by hand.
