    Yup, thats all you need to get up and running tho, the rest can be grabbed later (or by DSL owning minions :p )

    The amount of Linux and BSD distributions that I've downloaded over 56k is stupid, all I gotta say is thank god for download managers ;)

    well if I was on 56k I would just buy the sets for 25 bucks and have them ship it

    If I like the linux distro I try to help them and buy the thing, actually donate to Slackware every year as well.

    FreeBSD is widely used by ISP's and Such .. It is a nice Linux Distro ... I have it and will probably put it on my server when it is done ...

    Correction: FreeBSD is not linux ... it's BSD Unix. ;)

    NetRyder, yer right : BSD IS NOT LINUX :p

    Alex, There are no true screen shots when it comes to *nix it's primarily a CLI meaning there's not much point having a screen capture, there are of course WindowMaker, KDE, Gnome, etc which you can use for your desktop environment (after installing and configuring X *grumble* :p )
    here is a nice windowmaker shot if you need an example ... mmmmm windowmaker
