    Which file to get for OBSD 3.8

    I'm trying to download and try OpenBSD 3.8 from a mirror. And if I want FTP install, all I have to do is download "cdboot" file and pop the CD in? That's it? Which one do I need (more) if any? The last time I tried it, I downloaded the 5 floppy and that was it. Now, this box doesn't have floppy drive. TIA ..

    Oh BTW, what happen to "OBSD Firewall/Gateway guide" PET? It didn't make it over??

    Sorry about me pet, I tried one night to figure out how to do the wiki, got screwed up and havent had the time. I have the pet somewhere on my site, but the sucker is still in development and I cant do ftp from work here.

    All you need to do is the floppy install fwiw. Ill post back in a few hours once I get off and get home.

    Granted it is out of date, but should still get you thru the possibly rougher parts. Dont forget the BSD gurus at Screaming Electron. Those are primarily IT pros using this at the job and most of them at home or on the laptop too.

    Oh I foget if its in the guide or not, but BASH is not installed by default. csh is. You may want to port bash in if you arent more at home. Plus there is sh for root as the default, and it doesnt work well with me I change that ASAP after install.

    The last time I installed BSD was more than a year ago and not getting X to work turned me off. I didn't try hard enough though.

    Ksh is the default shell for OpenBSD these days. It is a nice shell. I prefer it over bash, to be honest, but I also use it all day at work, so I'm use to it.

    I prefer bash with its history, autocompletion and soforth. sh doesnt do squat, and ksh (which you are right is the user's default shell) is much less capable of, but secure as all hell.
