Default Installing an old set of ports with PCBSD
If I install PCBSD 1.3.01, can I install ports from a FreeBSD 6.1 or 6.2 installation disk to avoid issues related to xorg 7*?

If so, how's the best way to do this?

To install ports from a FreeBSD 6.2 Release installation CD, do I simply untar/decompress the ports file into /usr/ports?

Can I use sysinstall to install the ports from the CD rather than the internet?
