PICOBSD(8)              FreeBSD System Manager's Manual             PICOBSD(8)

     picobsd - floppy disk based FreeBSD system

     picobsd [options] [floppy-type [site-name]]

     picobsd is a script which can be used to produce a minimal implementation
     of FreeBSD (historically called PicoBSD) which typically fits on one
     floppy disk, or can be downloaded as a single image file from some media
     such as CDROM, flash memory, or through etherboot.
