The FreeBSD Handbook has information on using FTP.

I haven't followed your whole thread, but is there a good reason
you want to use such an old version of FreeBSD?   You would be
very seriously better off installing the latest version -- especially
if you plan to use the system on the internet.  There have been many
many security fixes since 2.0.5 was around.     It should not be
difficult to have access to the latest version in Hong Kong.  
There may even be a mirror site there.
