    i know the default is /bin/sh, but a lot of scripts out there use the /bin/bash shell, which is easy to install and change under BSD but seeing as i haven't installed it yet and i know you can select this option during install, it will save me a step once its in :)

    the default is tcsh :) sh is a symlink

    You can add it as a package at install I believe.

    I love OpenBSD's ksh, but I don't know how FreeBSD's fares.
