4.3-RELEASE is available for the i386 and alpha architectures and can
be installed directly over the net using the boot floppies or copied
to a local NFS/ftp server.

ISO (CD) Images

We can't promise that all the mirror sites will carry the larger ISO
images, but they will at least be available from:

and ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/alpha/ISO-IMAGES/4.3-install.iso

If you can't afford the CDs, are impatient, or just want to use it for
evangelism purposes, then by all means download the ISOs, otherwise
please do continue to support the FreeBSD project by purchasing one of
its official CD releases from BSDi. FreeBSD 4.3-RELEASE can be ordered
as a 4 CD set from The FreeBSD Mall from where it will soon be
shipping. Each CD sets contains the FreeBSD installation and
application package bits for either the x86 or the alpha architecture
(each architecture has its own CD set). For a set of distfiles used to
build ports in the ports collection, please see also the FreeBSD
Toolkit, a 6 CD set containing all such extra bits which we can no
longer fit on the 4 CD sets. You can also order by phone, postal mail,
FAX or email at:

Note: Despite the recent acquisition of BSDi's software assets by Wind
River, the above information still holds true for the forseeable
future and will not change for at least the life-cycle of the FreeBSD
4.3 product. Any changes in the FreeBSD product sales infrastructure
will be announced if and as they occur.

following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria,
