The handbook is mostly, if not completely relevant to 4.5, but I would suggest reading Appendix A of the handbook, esp. A.5, Using CVSup. http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cvsup.html You can install cvsup from the cds you bought, then use it to update your source tree and ports (third-party software) collection. That'll enable you to upgrade FreeBSD to a more recent version, which will be a good experience for you, and is a good idea, as 4.5 is rather old now, and there have been many improvements to the 4.x branch since then.
