    bunzip2 and tar should both be present on the CD and on the hard disk
    if you installed DragonFly.

    That source code is as-of the particular ISO image, so it won't be
    the latest.  It's also just the kernel source, not the whole base

    If you have network connectivity there is a Makefile in /usr that give
    you numerous targets to fetch the DragonFly CVS repository.  e.g.:

    # get the CVS repository
    cd /usr
    make cvs-cvsup

    # update /usr/src from the repository
    cd /usr
    make head-src-cvsup
