           Summary: Installer issues / bsdconfig
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.1-RELEASE
          Hardware: i386
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---

Issue # 1:
Network selection made during install aren't being carried over to the HD after
install is completed. Even if I go into the shell option after install &
attempt to ping i.e.: nothing is going through. The installer is
using it's own default DNS settings: ( So I went in later w/
bsdconfig & updated my network settings manually deleting the default all
together. Now I can ping out Yay me! :) 

Issue # 2
When I go into freebsd & select option 2 or 3 I'm attempting to update from ftp
I get:

No pkg(8) database found!

So so went into "options" under "Choose installation Media" & seen USB. Slick,
I downloaded a dvd image, (as per reading the documentation it has most of the
software in it & judging by size) burned it to a usb thumb drive that's 32Gb in
size. (Basically the same way I used dd to create the install media.) I
shutdown FreeBSD OS inserted my thumb drive, launched bsdconfig & attempted to
install from usb:

No pkg(8) database found!

Just to clarify... X11 went in just fine. 
Ideas? Anyone? 

Off to install a desktop...
