Go to  There are two links you might be interested in.  The
first is a how to for getting FreeBSD over the internet.  If you have a good
internet connection and lots of patience then give it a shot.

The other link takes you to a list of user groups.  For Australia there is:

Queensland. The Home UNIX Users Group for Brisbane meets fortnightly at
meeting rooms provided by the University of Queensland. More information,
including subscribing to the mailing lists, available at

South Australia. The South Australian FreeBSD Users Group (SAFUG) meets
sporadically monthly at a member's house. The next meeting is yet to be

New South Wales. The BSD Users Group, Sydney (BUGS) meets in Sydney every
two months and has mailing list members from all over NSW. To join the
mailing list send a message to with subscribe
bugs in the body of the message.

Victoria. Victoria's FreeBSD Users Group (VicFUG) is based in Melbourne. You
can join the mailing list by sending an empty message to

Making contact with these groups would be a real good way to find a set of
disks you can borrow as well as getting you in touch with local people with
similar interests.  It would also allow you to answer a few questions such
as "What's a fortnightly?" and is Victoria one of the daemon babes with her
own FreeBSD user group?

Good luck,

John Purser

Dear webmaster.

I am one of those who want to try FreeBSD, and don't have the damn
credit card.
How can I get one of those FreeBSD copies?
Do you have any local store around Sydney, Australia?
