So how do I start the cgi installer, or at least get the curses one to work
Login to DragonFly via SSH then run /usr/local/bin/installer. Atleast
this was the method a few versions ago.
In terms of the web installer, you would need a web server installed on
the ISO that you downloaded. If the binary is not in place then it will
be impossible to start the webserver. We used to include thttpd but
these days I would much prefer to include lighttpd as its bsd licensed
and kicks butt.
