Context English State
Before starting the process, <application>bsdinstall</application> will load the keymap files as show in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-keymap-loading"/>.
Keymap Loading
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-keymap-loading' md5='__failed__'
After the keymaps have been loaded <application>bsdinstall</application> displays the menu shown in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-keymap-10"/>. Use the up and down arrows to select the keymap that most closely represents the mapping of the keyboard attached to the system. Press <keycap>Enter</keycap> to save the selection.
Keymap Selection Menu
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-keymap-10' md5='__failed__'
Pressing <keycap>Esc</keycap> will exit this menu and use the default keymap. If the choice of keymap is not clear, <guimenuitem>United States of America ISO-8859-1</guimenuitem> is also a safe option.
In addition, when selecting a different keymap, the user can try the keymap and ensure it is correct before proceeding as shown in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-keymap-testing"/>.
Keymap Testing Menu
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-keymap-testing' md5='__failed__'
Setting the Hostname
The next <application>bsdinstall</application> menu is used to set the hostname for the newly installed system.
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-config-hostname' md5='__failed__'
Type in a hostname that is unique for the network. It should be a fully-qualified hostname, such as <systemitem class="fqdomainname"></systemitem>.
Selecting Components to Install
Next, <application>bsdinstall</application> will prompt to select optional components to install.
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-config-components' md5='__failed__'
Deciding which components to install will depend largely on the intended use of the system and the amount of disk space available. The FreeBSD kernel and userland, collectively known as the <firstterm>base system</firstterm>, are always installed. Depending on the architecture, some of these components may not appear:
<literal>base-dbg</literal> - Base tools like <application>cat</application>, <application>ls</application> among many others with debug symbols activated.
<literal>kernel-dbg</literal> - Kernel and modules with debug symbols activated.
<literal>lib32-dbg</literal> - Compatibility libraries for running 32-bit applications on a 64-bit version of FreeBSD with debug symbols activated.
<literal>lib32</literal> - Compatibility libraries for running 32-bit applications on a 64-bit version of FreeBSD.
<literal>ports</literal> - The FreeBSD Ports Collection is a collection of files which automates the downloading, compiling and installation of third-party software packages. <xref linkend="ports"/> discusses how to use the Ports Collection.
The installation program does not check for adequate disk space. Select this option only if sufficient hard disk space is available. The FreeBSD Ports Collection takes up about 500 MB of disk space.
<literal>src</literal> - The complete FreeBSD source code for both the kernel and the userland. Although not required for the majority of applications, it may be required to build device drivers, kernel modules, or some applications from the Ports Collection. It is also used for developing FreeBSD itself. The full source tree requires 1 GB of disk space and recompiling the entire FreeBSD system requires an additional 5 GB of space.
<literal>tests</literal> - FreeBSD Test Suite.
Installing from the Network
The menu shown in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-netinstall-notify"/> only appears when installing from a <filename>-bootonly.iso</filename> or <filename>-mini-memstick.img</filename> as this installation media does not hold copies of the installation files. Since the installation files must be retrieved over a network connection, this menu indicates that the network interface must be configured first. If this menu is shown in any step of the process remember to follow the instructions in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-config-network-dev"/>.

Allocating Disk Space
The next menu is used to determine the method for allocating disk space.
