here's the procedure which should be sufficient to get IMUNES up and running 
on FreeBSD 8.0-RC3 (I've tested this on amd64, but i386 should work as well):

- Install 8.0-RC3, along with the full src tree and the following packages:

- Fetch a kernel patch required for IMUNES to work, and patch the kernel:
    cd /tmp
    fetch http://imunes.net/imunes-8.0-RC3.diff
    cd /usr
    patch < /tmp/imunes-8.0-RC3.diff

- Create a VIMAGE kernel config in /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf/VIMAGE:
    include GENERIC
    options VIMAGE
    nooptions SCTP
    options KDB
    options DDB

- Build & install the VIMAGE kernel:
    cd /sys/amd64/conf
    config VIMAGE
    cd ../compile/VIMAGE
    make depend; make; make install

- Compile & install the vimage command:
    cd /usr/src/tools/tools/vimage
    make; make install

- Fetch & install the IMUNES GUI:
    cvs -d :pserver:anonym...@cvs.imunes.net:/usr/local/src/cvsroot co \
    cd imunes

Good luck,
