Use <command>find</command> to locate <filename>filename</filename> in <filename>/usr</filename> or any of its subdirectories with
<prompt>%</prompt> <userinput>find /usr -name "<replaceable>filename</replaceable>"</userinput>
You can use <literal>*</literal> as a wildcard in <parameter>"<replaceable>filename</replaceable>"</parameter> (which should be in quotes). If you tell <command>find</command> to search in <filename>/</filename> instead of <filename>/usr</filename> it will look for the file(s) on all mounted filesystems, including the CDROM and the DOS partition.
An excellent book that explains <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark> commands and utilities is Abrahams &amp; Larson, <citetitle>Unix for the Impatient</citetitle> (2nd ed., Addison-Wesley, 1996). There is also a lot of <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark> information on the Internet.
Next Steps
You should now have the tools you need to get around and edit files, so you can get everything up and running. There is a great deal of information in the FreeBSD handbook (which is probably on your hard drive) and <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/index.html">FreeBSD's web site</link>. A wide variety of packages and ports are on the CDROM as well as the web site. The handbook tells you more about how to use them (get the package if it exists, with <command>pkg add <replaceable>packagename</replaceable></command>, where <replaceable>packagename</replaceable> is the filename of the package). The CDROM has lists of the packages and ports with brief descriptions in <filename>cdrom/packages/index</filename>, <filename>cdrom/packages/index.txt</filename>, and <filename>cdrom/ports/index</filename>, with fuller descriptions in <filename>/cdrom/ports/*/*/pkg/DESCR</filename>, where the <literal>*</literal>s represent subdirectories of kinds of programs and program names respectively.
If you find the handbook too sophisticated (what with <command>lndir</command> and all) on installing ports from the CDROM, here is what usually works:
Find the port you want, say <command>kermit</command>. There will be a directory for it on the CDROM. Copy the subdirectory to <filename>/usr/local</filename> (a good place for software you add that should be available to all users) with:
