I installed FreeBSD 4.9 then did a upgrade to DragonFly as per
www.dragonflybsd.org/docs/upgrade-freebsd.cgi (26/03/2004)

  1.. First, make sure you are running FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE or later.
uname -a will tell you what version you are running. Note: FreeBSD 5
versions will not work for this upgrade.

  2.. Remove any FreeBSD source files from your machine. All commands after
this point should be run as root.
  rm -rf /usr/src
  rm -rf /usr/obj
  mkdir /usr/obj

  3.. If you do not have cvsup installed, these commands will download and
install it for you:
  pkg_add http://machdep.com/drhodus/cvsup-without-gui-16.1h.tgz

  4.. Fetch a configuration file for cvsup and run cvsup using that file:
  fetch http://machdep.com/drhodus/DragonFly-src-supfile
  cvsup DragonFly-src-supfile

  You now will have the DragonFly source files in /usr/src.

  5.. You will now want to compile the userland and the kernel.
  cd /usr/src
  make buildworld
  make buildkernel

  Then, you can install them:

  make installworld
  make installkernel

  6.. You will want to make sure your /etc directory is cleaned up:
  cd /usr/src/etc
  make upgrade_etc

  7.. You now can sync your disk and reboot your machine.

  8.. Congratulations! Your computer will boot into DragonFly! Make sure to
check the forums semi-regularly. If you have trouble booting, the bugs forum
is the first place to go.
I am now sitting a the root directory #bsd prompt. I am not sure how to get
the Gui up as things seem different than FreeBSD.
