11:34 AM - FTP installation

To install MidnightBSD using ftp, download the bootonly.iso (~22MB) and use that to boot your system.  You can burn it or if using a virtualization technology simply mount the iso.

Proceed with a standard install.  Partition your disk and select a boot loader on the next screen. 

When asked for media, specify ftp and then pick a custom ftp server.  Use this as the ftp server:

This will allow you to do a minimal install.   It maybe possible to use the mirror as well.  Downloading the full install iso from the mirror will most likely be faster.  Do not try to install ports or x11 from an ftp install.
