be warned, you are dealing with a  'newbie'
i have one machine that has internet access and another that does not
both machines were installed with FreeBSD_RELEASE_8_1 with a DVD
i am now using cvsup to upgrade the RELENG_8_1_RELEASE tree

my second machine does not have working ethernet

how do i transfer the updated ports tree to the other machine using
only storage media (DVD, USB)

my guess (hack) is to find all relavent files/data trees and simply
copy over, then run necessary updates (portsdb, make world...)

if that is correct then can you tell where those files are ?

if not then how should i do this ?
