If you've downloaded a fairly recent snapshot, you may have noticed a new file in the directory: install42.iso. This file is available for alpha, amd64, hppa, i386, macppc, sparc and sparc64 and it includes everything needed to install the OpenBSD 4.2 base system.
Now that the install sets are included in the installXY.iso image file, the single ISO file can be downloaded for the installation process. Previously with the cdXY.iso image files, you would also need to download the install sets separately (either to a local mirror or during the installation). This may have caused problems if you were setting up a system without network access during installation.
When pre-orders are announced for OpenBSD 4.2, please show your appreciation for this new, convenient installation method by donating at least the amount of a CD set when downloading your install42.iso file. Remember, the OpenBSD project is funded through CD sales and donations. And, stickers don't come with the iso file...
