Over here = Belgium, so the German FTP servers are the closed and were the
fastest (till last week).
I use (the upper German one in the sysinstall util)

What exactly is "over here", and which FTP server are you
trying to use?

In case you didn't know, there's a whole lot of FreeBSD
FTP mirrors all over the world. It's generally a good idea
to picke the one which is closest to your location.
Please refer to for a complete
list of FTP mirrors and further instructions.
