How to Install YaBB 2.2 on FreeBSD-6.2

I've created an install package for YaBB-2.2 installs on FreeBSD-6.2.
Just a few bourne shell scripts mostly, but it includes the lastest
(as of 2007-12-15) bug fix (YaBB_2_2BugFix.zip),
the original YaBB tar file (YaBB_2.2.tar.gz),
and the Quick-Guide update file (3.html).
The package has been tested on a FreeBSD-6.2 system ONLY
so far, but should work fine on any BSD/Linux/GNU system.  The
scripts are quiet simple, and should be eazy to modify to fit any
system.
The included scripts are:

    * YaBB-Install.sh - the main installer script
    * YaBB-BugFix.sh - apply bug fix files over fresh install
    * YaBB-CRLF.sh - handle carriage returns in text files
    * YaBB-CHMOD.sh - ensure directories/files have correct modes


YaBB-Tools will create a fresh YaBB-2.2 installation.
If found, any existing install will be moved to "dir.date" ie:
(yabbfiles.2007_12_15_08_31_39)
(yabb2.2007_12_15_08_31_39)
The package is called YaBB-Tools.tar.gz, and is availible at:
   www.tru2life.com/yabbtools/YaBB-Tools.tar.gz ;
If there is any interest, I'll create a YaBB-Upgrade.sh script to
handle upgrading an existing YaBB-2.x install...
(my script is not very pretty so far...)
