Actually, I don't think that the names (or even a template that the names
couold be derived from) of the actual cd images that you should use to
install freebsd from.  I know that there is more than a single choice.  I
know that I personally, just downloaded the biggest one, as a guess, and
that worked, but I don't know what the smaller ones would have done, if
they might have been better to install from (I have networking sufficent to
install from the net alone, which is what I did).  Somewhere, the
descriptions of what the different ISO images do should show up, mostlikely
in the manual.

Am I wrong?  Give a pointer, if you think I'm wrong.
