I realized my typing mistake after sending this to the group, but hoped
that the "alt-F3" would help.
Lets just use alt-f3. 
To further explain (?):
During a fresh install the system uses vty0. When the time comes to finally
start downloading (using FTP), a screen is shown telling the person to go
use the ALT-F3 keys (vty2) to use term. For me, that key combination is not
"active". In fact, just vty1 is available (to view what FreeBSD is doing).
I will just download the floppies from a later date (19990808-11).

ps- sorry for some of the generalities...I am just going by memory w/o
being able to see the screens.
