The install images are based on the contents of the package archives at
the time of creation. Unless you have no internet access on the existing
GNU/kFreeBSD box, there's no point using the new CD image for anything.
Everything on the CD is from the normal package archives, so you'll get
the same packages (or newer ones most likely) from your internet mirror.
