Thank you Manolis :) I am trying to learn FreeBSD the hard way :)
Actually, everything is OK with my system now that I can boot it but I cannot get X11 to install. I tried pkg_add -r kde (x is allready installed as such) but the download fails. I even tried to install it from a CD but I get an error about some error while copying a library to HD and the installation process could not continue. It asked me to check some screen for debugging purposes (but it was not obvious which screen as I was in sysinstall). I will try to reproduce the problem and report back as soon as I finish compiling custom kernel. Thanks!
