I have FreeBSD 4.8 installed on my 400mhz amd with 256mb ram (this is probably useless 

I was wondering how I install packages like emacs? are they on the CD? can I choose 
them from the install menu? the reason I ask is because I didn't see it listed in the 
install options but maybe I over looked it...

sorry this is like 20 questions, but also normally when I used freebsd at work I and 
would be typing a path and I could hit tab and it would finish the path for me or tell 
me what file names are close/similar but when I hit tab on my FreeBSD box it just tabs 
spaces... I figured maybe I was using the wrong shell... if so how do I change shells? 
is this the problem? 

the reason I figured it was the wrong type of shell... is because del/delete doesn't 
backspace either, it gives me weird characters like "^something " the delete/del 
problem might just be that is a rule my admin had set or something but I don't know so 
I'm not really concerned with that but if it helps to understand what I might be doing 
wrong then shout it out right?

thanks in advance for any help/advice you can give
