Yeah, the cvs tag is RELENG_4_2_0_RELEASE

Since a lot of people have been asking, here are the two-minute instructions for upgrading:

You can upgrade with cvsup by creating a supfile called src-supfile containing:

----------------------------------------
# run this supfile with the following command:
# cvsup -g -L 2 src-supfile

*default host=cvsup5.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4_2_0_RELEASE
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
src-all
----------------------------------------

(do not include the dashed lines)

run "cvsup -g -L 2 src-supfile && cd /usr/src && make world" to upgrade the
userspace. Then upgrade the kernel with something like:
cd /usr/src/sys && config GENERIC && cd ../../compile/GENERIC && make all install

This will rebuild and install the GENERIC kernel. If you're running a different kernel from GENERIC, replace GENERIC with the name of your kernel config file.
