I installed in my i386 machine this system, and the installation went well, but when I booted the system, FreeBSD couldn't get information to the DHCP. However, during installation the installer was able to access the DHCP.
Why does the boot process include a retrieval of files from the net? I think a boot image...
By the way, I couldn't get the base-dbg during installation (checksum error)... I had not to use this package.
I used the main mirror of the FreeBSD project.
