Having installed v2.2.7 and got XFree86 to work I am confused as to how to
install packages.  I have about 4 tar files I am trying to install and they
exist on my primary drive in c:\FreeBSD\packages - FreeBSD is on my
secondary drive.
When I run /stand/sysinstall and choose to install packages it says
something along the lines of being unable to find /index - I don't have the
CD and I suspect it is looking for a directory structure I do not have in
place.
Given that I am still working on getting a PPP connection to work and so
have to use my Win95 connection to get to ftp.freebsd.org and download the
files I want, where should I put the tar files and how do I go about
installing them?

Thanks,
Alex
