 Newbie failing at installing package...
I've just loaded freeBSd onto a Pentium 200 using the express option,
just to see what's up (very nice.)
I went to the packages/editors directory and did something like pkg_add
nano blah blah (believe me, I got the syntax right, right off freeBSD's
webpage.) I get this error message starting with something like this:

=====> abiword

I'm getting a book tomorrow, but I'd like to install something on my own
first. tgz packages never gave me any trouble in Slackware, so it's a
pretty good system. I know I'm doing something wrong, what might it be?


There is a leisure class at both
ends of the financial spectrum.
