Not sure what you're getting at - are you asking if the "install server" and "add client" scripts (not their real names) will run on NetBSD or FreeBSD, or are you asking if you can access the files on the DVDs?

All I was getting at was that many of my older systems lack DVD drives, and shoveling in several CD-ROMs is so '90s ;^) Besides, I suspect the free media sets are complete, which means they include the documentation, language and freeware software as well...
