Sorry for the inconvenience.  Known Navigation header breakage, its being "rebuilt."
There may be other unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
The Table Of Contents section of each "PC-BSD® Users Handbook" page may be the best workaround.

To write the USB IMG file to a Flash Card or USB pen drive you can do this with the Unix/Linux command '''dd''':
+

'''dd if=<path_to/img_file.img> of=/dev/da0 bs=1m'''
+
 
+
Just substitute da0 with the device name of your USB stick.
+

NOTE: The USB images are FreeBSD-UFS formatted, and will not show up as a viewable file-system under Windows.

ADD SECTION ON how-to to flash a USB pen drive with the installer image. On Unix system this can be done with dd(1) and on Windows there's the [http://m0n0.ch/wall/physdiskwrite.php physdiskwrite] gui utility written by the M0n0wall crew.
