Thanks a lot for your reply, Jaime!

But you know, this PC is single machine with FreeBSD. I think it'll be good
choice to update source if I can download it from web-site as tar archive
(for example, like ports tree). 

Best regards,
Ivakin Dmitriy

	Could you take a removable HD to another FreeBSD box that has an  
Internet connection?  If so, you could cvsup to a src directory on  
the HD and then use something like rsync or tar to move the files  
over.  Just check the man pages for information about preserving  
ownership and permissions.

	This idea is just for brainstorming.  I've never tried it with  
FreeBSD.  I've tried things resembling it with MacOS X.

							Good luck,
