Use FreeBSD 4.8. There are several pages on freebsd.org that say use 4.x
for stability, 5.x for trying out new tech. Also, I'd not use named or
sendmail. There are programs out there that are (in my opinion) better.
djbdns is a lot more secure than named, and postfix is a lot more secure
and a lot faster than sendmail... not to mention much easier to configure.
