If you've got the CD for 2.2.2, then:

1) Backup /etc  (to be safe)
2) Backup any 'local' stuff that you've installed and want to keep
3) Mount the 2.2.2 CD
4) 'cd /cdrom/dists'
5) 'sh extract base bin include [...]' (Any other of the rolled distributions you want)
6) reboot
7) make any "manual" adjustments to /etc files to start the appropriate bits

Alternatively, the 'sysinstall' has a rudimentary "upgrade" process on the main menu - you may want to try that....

(I've CC'd -questions on this thread; that's where it belongs.)

Can you advise me, how can I upgrade from FreeBSD 2.2.2 to FreeBSD
2.1.0, using only source code.
