Hi Poly,

Thanks for replying.

In the above context, there are 2 things I have not been able to figure 
out :

1) If I forgot to choose the src distribution at installation time, can 
I install the src.txz tarball by hand myself later from the installation 
media ?

2) Is it possible to create a pristine FreeBSD environment by hand on a 
new (MBR+UFS) slice using the tarballs on the installation media ? If 
this is possible, can you be kind enough to list the strategy 
outline/steps ?

Thanks again for help.
