I always liked the thought of haveing OpenBSD running on my webserver. And I liked the fact that OpenBSD can be installed with a single floopy-image.
However, the bootfloppy OpenBSD provides is designed to work on a computer with a monitor and a keyboard only. And it is a toughie to customize.
So look at my collection I got so far:
With a serial console:Those bootfloppys are the standard OpenBSD-floppies, but instead of using the graphics adapter as stdout, it uses the serial output. This makes an OpenBSD-Installation on a root-/dedicated-/(whatever) server much easier! (As long as your server is connected to a serial console server, of course...)
Look at my howto to see how you can customize them to your needs.
(all floppies use 57600,8N1 as serial parameters)
Custom start script:Those are my latest ones: I tampered a bit with /usr/src/distrib/miniroot/dot.profile, and tried to add an startup-script, which is easier to access than the ones on the bootfloppy. It is just a quick-and-dirty hack at the moment, so don't bother about all the warnings at boot-time...
When you mount them on your local computer, like I have written in my howto, you will probably notice a file called "autoexec.ksh"
Because there are some providers out there, who won't give you the luxury of a serial console, you can see wether computer boots or not. Just set the correct networking parameters, and try to ping it. Great for a testdrive too!
My goal is to come up with an auto-installer. So please download those floppies and check them out, IF you are planning to "depenguinate" a box.
Btw: All floppys are i386 only. Sorry.
