True. I got FreeBSD 5.4 running on another box and used the make.conf as a 
starter. I have amended the make.conf file. My err.

What I basically want is a make.conf with just enough to start FreeBSD, with 
SSH. Everything else to be installed from ports. Is this feasible? And if 
yes, which options are required? Crypto, CCX and OPENSSH? Any pointer in any 
direction much appreciated.
