I have installed FreeBSD 4.3, and am now attempting to install some 
software from the "Post Install menu".  Two packages I am trying to install 
are :-
The installation appears to go ahead, when a message appears on-screen 
saying "Package cvsupit-30. read successfully- waiting for Pkg_add(1)"  At 
this point the message hangs and nothing happens.  After some time I am 
forced into re-booting in order to get the system running again.  When 
re-booted none of the selected packages have been installed, including 
various utilities and other software packages.
Where am I going wrong here?  It's got to be me I'm sure.
Thanks in advance for any help.
