You don't need to have any discs shipped to you. FreeBSD is available
for free from a number of sites around the world. You can find a list
of servers at:
(URL may have wrapped)
You don't say where in Africa you are, but one of the sites on the
above list is in South Africa. You really need to d/l just the iso of
disc 1 if you want the base system and ports skeleton. Of course, you
could d/l just the floppy images and do an ftp install to minimize your
online time even more.
What exactly is the project you're working on and in which country?
Perhaps we can be of service we if had more information.
