where are base, info, kernels, dict, doc, games, manpages, ports,
src, etc. for 7.0-REL?

I can't seem to find the "distributions" listed in
the Subject: line on any of the 7.0-RELEASE ISO images.
What am I missing?
I know the 7.0-RELEASE announcement says the "bootable"
ISO can be used along with FTP to finish the install, but
I can't get FTP (or passive FTP, for that matter) to work
as it has in the past. I am behind a m0n0wall firewall,
but I believe I have used passive FTP in the past to get
around that problem. I even opened up the firewall with
a "pass all" rule, but it still didn't work. It looked
like it could not resolve ftp.freebsd.org or ftp9.freebsd.org
since it hung there "trying to connect with..." until it
gave up. I tried several different (known good) DNS server
IP addresses, but nothing worked.
Then I went looking for the distributions in the ISO
images. Not finding them there either has really had
a negative impact on my install today, sigh... :-(
