Pardon the top post, but I'd take all this a step or so further for a 'newbie' 
with only one machine:

- Install a 'production' release of DragonFly in a separate slice before 
installing 'preview' or 'head' in its own slice.

Equip the 'production' one with email, browser, man pages - all the 'tools' you 

And *keep* that one installed. i.e. - be able to boot to no fewer than TWO DFLY.
Throw in FreeBSD, Minix or a Linux if you have the space, time, and inclination.
Use a second drive or a USB stick if need be.
Now you have a DragonFly baseline that is 'known stable', gets you man pages, 
packages, tarballs, browsing, etc - all with minimal hassle vs HEAD.
