MY recomendations in order:
1) Buy a CD. Reinstall, and make sure that your root file system is not
on the same partition as the rest of the system. 2.5 is comming soon so you
might want to wait a week or two.
2) FTP the .tar.gz files to a local machine, then do another ftp install
from the local copy (see above).
3) Rebuild your kernel to use swap on another disk/partition other than
wd0b/sd0b (also see above).
