(Can't reply on -newbies, it's a list charter thing :).)
4.x versions come from the STABLE branch and, so, do not
have ipfw2 compiled in the kernel by default. (Instead, they
use the older, and more tested, ipfw.)
If you want ipfw2, refer to 'man 8 ipfw', the section "using
ipfw2 on freebsd-stable," for very good instructions.
