Please refer to the following files on the two CDROM's for extensive
details on how to install OpenBSD 2.9 on your machine:




This is quick installation information for people familiar with OpenBSD,
and the use of the new "disklabel -E" command.  If you are at all
confused when installing OpenBSD, read the relevant INSTALL.* file as
listed above!


Play with your BIOS options, and see if you can enable booting from
CD.  Use CD1.  Not all BIOS/CDROM combinations work well.  If not,
write CD1:2.9/i386/floppy29.fs to a floppy, then boot that.  Use
floppyB29.fs if floppy29.fs turns out to not support a SCSI controller
you need.  Finally, floppyC29.fs contains cardbus support for
laptops.  Use cdrom29.fs for a 2.88MB floppy.  If you are mixing
OpenBSD with another operating system, you will want to read the
INSTALL.i386 document.  If you have problems with pcibios, use "> boot
-c" and then "UKC> disable pcibios"; and after the install read the
pcibios(8) manual page.


Hold down Command, Option, O and F keys while booting, until you are
presented with the Open Firmware > prompt. To boot from CD1, type 
"boot cd:,ofwboot /2.9/powerpc/bsd.rd".


See the detailed install instructions in INSTALL.vax.


To boot from CD2, type "boot cdrom 2.9/sparc/bsd.rd", or
"b sd(0,6,0)2.9/sparc/bsd.rd" depending on your ROM version.
Otherwise, write CD2:2.9/sparc/floppy29.fs to a floppy and boot it
using "boot fd()" or "boot floppy" depending on your ROM version.


Create BSD partitions according to INSTALL.amiga's preparation section.
Mount CD2 under AmigaOS as device CD0: Next, execute the following
CLI command: "CD0:2.9/amiga/utils/loadbsd CD0:2.9/amiga/bsd.rd".


You can boot over the network by following the instructions in


Boot MacOS as normal and partition your disk with the appropriate A/UX
configurations.  Extract the Macside utilities from
CD2:2.9/mac68k/utils onto your hard disk.  Run Mkfs to create your
filesystems on the A/UX partitions you just made.  Then, use the
BSD/Mac68k Installer to copy all the sets in CD2:2.9/mac68k/ onto your
partitions.  Finally, you will be ready to configure the BSD/Mac68k
Booter with the location of your kernel and boot the system.


See the detailed install instructions in INSTALL.mvme68k.


Further Notes:

To make a floppy under MS-DOS, use CD1:2.9/tools/rawrite.exe.  Under
NT, use CD1:2.9/tools/ntrw.exe instead.  To write a floppy under Unix,
use "dd if=<file> of=/dev/<device> bs=32k" (where <device> could be
"floppy" or "rfd0c" or "rfd0a").

Use properly formatted perfect floppies with NO BAD BLOCKS or you will



CD1 has two tar.gz files containing the source tree. These are:


Using these trees it is possible to get a head-start on using the
anoncvs servers as described at http://www.OpenBSD.org/anoncvs.html.
Using these files will result in a much faster initial CVS update than
you could expect from a fresh CVS checkout of the full OpenBSD source

To unpack the source trees (assuming the CD is mounted on /mnt):

	# mkdir /usr/src
	# cd /usr/src
	# tar xvfz /mnt/src.tar.gz
	# tar xvfz /mnt/srcsys.tar.gz

If you are doing whole system rebuilds, you probably want to unpack
both parts, as shown above.

After this, /usr/src will be a nice checkout area where all cvs(1)
commands will work.  Refer to http://www.OpenBSD.org/anoncvs.html for
more details.

If you want just the kernel source from CD1, do the following:

	# mkdir -p /usr/src
	# cd /usr/src
	# tar xvfz /mnt/srcsys.tar.gz

For building replacement kernels, the important man pages to read are
config(8) and options(4).


CD2 contains the following things:

Changelogs/	All the CVS commit logs we have generated while
		working on the project.
ports.tar.gz	Our ports tree. Refer to CD2:PORTS
XF4.tar.gz	A CVS checkout of our version of the XFree86 source tree.
