Cheeplinux don't (yet) seem to quite understand the difference between
FreeBSD and GPL Linux.  The FreeBSD web pages say things like
"CheepLinux FreeBSD is the GPL FreeBSD distribution made available by
CheepLinux in accordance with the GPL license."  (I have just emailed
them about this.)

However they do have the disks, and I've found their service to be very
prompt - in my experience always arriving in the post first thing the
day after ordering.

4 CD FreeBSD 4.7 - 10 pounds

2 CD FreeBSD 5.0 - 7.50

"It's the sort of thing that happens.  It's ... er ... magic."
