I did this once under 5.1 release. I think it's still the same procedere: Insert the 5.2.1-RELEASE CD-ROM and boot into the installation menu. Then select the 'Fixit' option from the install menu. Next select option 2 CDROM/DVD (you need the 5.2.1-RELEASE-i386-disc2.iso handy or download it from a freebsd ftp server). The fixit shell starts on terminal 4, where you can fsck and mount your damaged filesystem. cd to /dist, there you may find the files you are looking for. regards ch
