The boot manager can be whichever you want. If you are installing on
a VM, chances are you're not dual-booting it, so yes, Standard Boot

This would be contingent on how you have networking set up. Do you
have NAT or Bridged only? If NAT, use rc.conf with the inet address
of your choice and the netmask for your NAT.
