Once the system is up-and-running, forget about sysinstall.  (Or, for
those of you that keep up with the latest trends, bsdinstall).  The
install is done, and its job is over.

Instead, choose one of the following two exciting command lines,
according to taste:

   # csup -h cvsup.fr.freebsd.org /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile=


(Choose a cvsup server near you if you don't happen to be anywhere near
France)

--or--

   # portsnap fetch extract

	Cheers,

	Matthew
