i am a new convert to un*x type operating systems and henceforth am a 
little confused about certain things. since i am pursuing programming 
endeavors and so forth i believ it would be beneficial to run a un*x type 
operating system on my home PC. i do know that i will need the prting 
capabilities of X11 and so forth and understand that FreeBSD has an X11 
add-on...

i have gone to your ftp site but find it rather daunting to download tens 
of megabytes of binaries! where can i get the cdrom???

one last question... (or rather two) :

1) will i still be able to retain my WFW3.11 files on my hard drive (in 
other words, can i boot FreeBSD from a diskette)???

2) exactly how much of my hard drive is FreeBSD going to eat away???

sincerely,
