Yes, you can install the installer by entering the command

        # bsdinstall

at the console.

You can use the ifconfig tool to change your network settings
and make them permanent by editing /etc/rc.conf accordingly.
The installer will just append changed settings to that file.




PS.

It's helpful to write a short summary of the question or problem
in the subject line; users' MUAs might automatically delete a
message with no subject (similar to a message without a body)...
