I must have replied directly the first time. Actually, I've done a 5.2 
install "blind" on my Ultra 5 via the local console. It wasn't easy, but 
I got through it. I didn't exactly have a lot of experience with FreeBSD 
either - this was my first FreeBSD SPARC install and only my second 
FreeBSD install ever.
