#1. You can get a live CD plug the disk you installed on into
another machine and then use the live CD to boot and mount the
disk and burn it to a CD and copy it over.
<<-- Live 5.3-RELEASE CD.
Also the first disk of the 5.X 6.X releases are livefs cd's to.
#2. "The big alternative" this I have tested very well.
setup ccache & distcc on both machines and then youll
beable to use the power of your main more powerfull
machine or even "Machine(s)" to compile stuff in a
Best of luck.

There is a well known thing where these cheap pata fakeraid cards will try to do ata133 if the drive says it can, when really, even if he drives are new ata133 drives and the cables are new and short and shielded, you still shouldn't try to do ata133 since the spec is too tight and you'll just get bit errors or other failures. ... The fix is use ata100 somehow, either by disabling dma entirely in loader.conf (since you have no more selective option there, and the raid card bios never has an option for controlling pio/dma mode like motherboard bios's have) and then use atacontrol in rc.early to set udma5, or by using disks that can only do ata100 and only advertise ata100 to the controller. ...
