Installed RC4 two different times while learning the installation process.
Did some hair-pulling while trying to figure out how to download pkgs only to 
finally realize I had installed csh for root shell instead of sh. Don't know 
how that happened, but I did. Once I got that changed, things went a lot 
smoother :)
Now, RC4 is installed and running quite nicely. I am used to OpenBSD and 
FreeBSD, so a bit of learning curve.
Now I can say "great job" to you devs and I'm looking forward to 5.1 :)
