        Next question:
        Can someone explain this:

h...@jerusalem>> sysctl kern.version
kern.version: FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT #0: Tue Jan 20 10:40:57 EST 2009
    h...@jerusalem.litteratus.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/JERUSALEM
h...@jerusalem>> uname -a
FreeBSD jerusalem.litteratus.org 7.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #0: Tue Jan 20 
10:40:57 EST 2009     
h...@jerusalem.litteratus.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/JERUSALEM  i386
