    Where to get OBSD 3.9 ISO ?

    Do you know of any source? I tried searching google and all I found was for OBSD 3.6. Some stuff like "with WIFI support" on bittorrent network don't work and it won't even start download even after a few days ..

    TIA

    OpenBSD doesn't distribute the ISO. You don't need it to install, though. If you have a network connection, just download the floppy boot file of choice and rawrite it (or dd it) to your floppy and boot from that. If you have a second computer and want to shorten the install time, download everything in advance and set up your own FTP server and point the network install to your box instead of one of the defaults. The install documentation for your particular platform (guessing it's i386) is laid out step-by-step and well documented.

    http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq3.html#ISO
    ftp://ftp.zedz.net/pub/OpenBSD.snapshot/ look at the release date for 3.9 and pick the snapshot from that day, my guess is: ftp://ftp.zedz.net/pub/OpenBSD.snaps...6-06-06-12.iso is pretty damn close
    Else theres: http://ftp.giga.net.tw/#openbsd

    Thanks guys.

    I can't download floppy ones since my box doesn't have floppy drive. The box is also isolated so network install is out of the question. I could download it and put in CDs but that's too much work. I know there are third party ISOs out there.

    Thanks for the links redhead. I was hoping to avoid snapshots since I'm not rather brave enough to run unstables but then again may be it's okay since it's test only box.

    Thanks again guys.

    There is a bootable cdrom iso for a netinstall. I use that almost all the time now.

    ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.9/i386/cd39.iso
