Thanks for all help.

uname says "FreeBSD 4.10-SECURITY"

Looks like I should do a fresh install. What's a bugger is this  
server does dns (bind 8) and web hosting (Apache 1.3) for a few  
hundred domains.

I can backup the zone and web data no problem but I've only installed  
FreeBSD a few times while looking for a replacement for Gentoo.

I need to get this right.

This server will only be doing dns and some minor (low hit) web hosting.

I will do my own homework and google like hell before I do this but  
I'd like to ask here on this list what version of FreeBSD I should go  
with
if there is a good howto for a combo bind/apache/php/mysql build.

Thanks for sharing your valuable time.
