4.9 is no longer supported.  You should use 5.4 or 6.0, or, preferably,
wait for about a week and use 5.5 or 6.1.  I would recommend 6.X; 5.X is
at this point essentially a 'legacy branch' (5.5 is the last of its series,
and intended only as an upgrade path from 5.4.)

There is a lot of documentation on that you should start
with; after that, if you still have questions, the freebsd-questions
mailing list is probably your best bet.

Good luck, you'll find there is a lot to learn.
