You could of course buy the DVD from FreeBSD Services.
They're =A340 per release (or =A3150 for a 4 issue subscription) and =
really nice :-)
It's a 2 DVD set.
DVD 1 contains the install image plus all the packages, and is also useable
as a fixit image as well.
DVD 2 contains a /usr/ports, you can just mount it as /usr/ports and off
you go, it includes all the distfiles.
Bonded onto the back of DVD2 is a CD image, so if you only have a CD-ROM
then you can still use this package. The CD is an install image with as
many packages as we could fit on it, plus it's useable as a fixit CD too.
We'll have the online ordering site up in a few days. I'll post the URL
here when it's ready :-)
