Data Where to obtain FreeBSD?

Anyone help ! From where can I download a free version of FreeBSD ?
I am trying to teach myself this OS, have all the documentation needed, but am short the OS itself.

If anyone can send me a link, I would be most appreciative !

Hi,

Go to www.freebsd.org and there is a link there to download freeBSD. Best bet would be to use a download program if your not on anything faster then a cable connection :-) Or if you want as you might be running off a dialup you can order a CD set. Save sending hours downloading it, well more like days if it's a 56k.

I downloaded freeBSD for work and well with all the ISO's I downloaded (5) it was about 2.6 gig :-)

:-)

Wow, that was fast ! Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a try here at work through their T1 connection ! (what the heck, I guess it's work related, just furthering my education).

You can also download the FreeBSD ISO images from http://www.linuxiso.org/. They have FreeBSD, NetBSD and a bunch (a whole bunch!) of Linux ISO images.
