I have recently installed FreeBSD 2.0.  My problem is to get XFree86 to work.

I have installed the bindist++ from an MSDOS partition (I have no access to 
ftp from the computer I am installing on), but the problem start when I come 
to the Xfree-part.  The filenames on the Xfree-files are too long for MSDOS.  
If I try to change them, I get an error, not a valid distribution.  I have 
found no way to change the installation "from-path" during an installation.

Are there any smart things for me to do???


In the readme-file that comes with the 2.0-release, there is mentioned a 
4.4BSD document set.  I tried to get this from my local book-shop, but had no 
luck.  They couldn't fint the ISBN# in their database...

What is the easiest way to get this set, for a Norwegian?
