Hi Gman,

Great idea on the install fest. To help out I'll send you a link
to the BSDA study DVD to burn 5 or so copies to give away. It has
the latest version of DFly, FBSD, NBSD, and OBSD. You can install
from the DVD or run each as a "live DVD".  However, the DVD only
supports 64bit Intel/AMD Architectures, so it wont work for folks
bringing 32bit hardware, or Old Sparc 5s  :-)

Sending in next email...

Jim B.
