Sorry, I accidently duplicated a few lines, here is how it should

mount /dev/wd1a /mnt
cd /mnt
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/base.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/etc.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/games.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/misc.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/man.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/text.tgz

If you have a large cf you might want to add:
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/comp.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/xbase.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/xcomp.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/xetc.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/xfont.tgz
tar -xzvpf <your-path-to-the-distribution>/binary/sets/xserver.tgz

This also assumes you have a wireless card as your nework interface,
wi0. If you have a ne2k ethernet card, change ifconfig.wi0 to
ifconfig.ne0, etc. If you haven't got any network card at all,
don't create the etc/ifconfig.**0 file. Then you can skip the
defaultroute line in etc/rc.conf too, to avoid an error message.
