Greetings-

I have need to install FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE amd64 to build some packages. My usual method of installation is via the *-bootonly.iso, pulling the install from FTP. However, it appears since 8.1-RELEASE is old and deprecated, none of the mirrors have the files available anymore to use during the installer.

So, how do I proceed:

1. Does anyone have a proper URL to put into the installer? I already tried ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org but I think there is additional path info needed
2. Should I install from the full CD or DVDs? If successful, would I still have problems pulling the ports tree for 8.1-RELEASE?

Thanks!

--Tim
