Put it in (of course :))
# mount /cdrom
I don't know how the DVD is formatted, I'm guessing its in standard
cd9660 filesystem, in which case the above command will 'just work'.
Then its a case of finding the mozilla package on the disc.
# find /cdrom -name "*mozilla*.tgz"
That should get it. Lastly just pkg_add -v with the resulting path
from `find'. Hopefully, you should have a working Mozilla by the end
of that :)
