I've only tinkered with OpenBSD on and off, but I've always followed this 
advice from that page:

"We suggest that people who want to download OpenBSD for free use the FTP 
install option. For those that need a bootable CD for their system, 
bootdisk ISO images (named cd35.iso) are available for a number of 
platforms which will then permit the rest of the system to be installed 
via FTP. These ISO images are only a few megabytes in size, and contain 
just the installation tools, not the actual file sets."

In general, I'm fond of ftp installs anyhow.  It is nice that there's a 
"mini" multi-platform ISO to kickstart the process on floppy-less boxes.
