Problem: at chunk 25 of 76 of bin it stalls. I reset the
it starts d/l again from scratch and stalls at chunk 25 of 76.. got lucky
once and it
started again and went to chunk 38 but there it stalled.. Is there something
else i need
to do to get this install up and running?

I'm sure i could d/l the files needed for install using wsftp.exe but i have
absolutley no idea which files to get or how to start an install from my c:\
drive.. besides i probably would have no room on the win98 side to d/l all
the files.. I wonder if i could format the freebsd partition and copy the
install files there and do an install to that partition from that
partition.. if so what directories and files would i need..
