Oh, yes, one more thought-- your specific application, i.e. a large  
database, is one where running in 64-bit mode is highly likely to  
result in improved performance compared with running the OS in 32-bit  
mode.  If you've got a AMD64 or EM64T capable CPU, consider  
installing the 64-bit version of FreeBSD instead of the normal 32-bit  
x86 version.
