1. when i install freebsd 7.0 on my laptop acer 5583 nwxmi when i type halt -p it's only shutdown the system, not like in my pc it shutdown completely is this normal ?
halt -p should powerdown your computer, unfortunately this doesn't work for all mainboards because of ACPI differences/perks.

2. i use wi fi alot on my laptop, my wifi is intel pro 3945 and freebsd 7.0 seems not detected it at all. Where can i get the driver ?
Yes, the wpi(4) driver, which is included in FreeBSD.

3. i use marvell yukon ethernet 88e8030 in my laptop and i have download the driver from the package is "installbsd70x86v10.51.2.3.tar.gz" how i install it ?
Doesn't the msk(3) driver (Again, included with FreeBSD) work?

In any case, you can extract this archive with:
% tar xf installbsd70x86v10.51.2.3.tar.gz

4. i need pspp 0.6.0 for my last work before i graduate but i see only pspp 04.0_1 on freebsd port can you help me
math/pspp is at version 0.6.0, you probably have an out-of-date portstree.
See chapter 4.5.1 of the FreeBSD handbook for instructions on how to update your ports tree.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
