You can automatically download and install binary packages by doing

	pkg_add -r 

where you replace  with the URL to the package.  This will also
automatically install the packages the package you download is dependent on
(ie, the packages it needs in order to work.)

You can get a good standard workstation install by using the
instant-workstation port/package.  If you have ports installed, you can
install it by doing

	# cd /usr/ports/misc/instant-workstation
	# make install && make clean

as root.  This will install a collection of packages that is convenient to
have on a workstation.

You can get a good generic server install by using the
instant-server port/package.  If you have ports installed, you can
install it by doing

	# cd /usr/ports/misc/instant-server
	# make install && make clean

as root.  This will install a collection of packages that is appropriate for
running a "generic" server.
