Thanks, yeah; eventually, I didn't get *exactly* what I wanted on the cd,
but too much is better than too little...

Now my main tasks have been learning the disk label program... heh, and
I consider myself a linux fdisk/mbr expert, disklabel is hard, particularly
when not "just using the whole disk"

Per Theo's request to test the 3.6 openbsd iso
(which should be in all the snapshot mirrors now...)

and my desire to learn new stuff (while not making coasters), anybody
got comments/notes on setting up a PXE (network installer) based on the
iso filesystem? (have done similar under linux... so the server is not
so much a problem as exactly what to put in it)
