CVSup has *nothing* to do with an initial install of FreeBSD.  Your
problem seems to stem from your misunderstanding of how things actually
work.  The stuff you want is in /usr/src/usr.sbin/sysinstall and has
nothing at all to do with CVSup.

I'm not trying to flame you here or make you feel stupid, please don't
take this message that way.  You just seem to have some misconceptions
that are leading you in the wrong direction and I'm just trying to point
them in a better direction :-)
