Try to connect to It's not linux it's FreeBSD, which
i've compiled circle under straight from the box. They've got quite
comprehensive FAQ and installation material on the FTP site. BTW FreeBSD
is also available on a CD, along with a book about running with it.

IMHO FreeBSD beats linux in one very major way: There's printed manuals
available. (Publisher: O'Reilly)

FreeBSD allows you to do install from disks, CD, FTP, tape or almost
anything you'd like.
