[ Editor's Note:  Just to make it clear that the two products are well
  differentiated - this product should not be confused with the
  Walnut Creek CDROM 2.2.6 CD product, a 4 CD set containing also all
  the precompiled packages for FreeBSD, ports distfiles, XFree86 dist
  (full sources and binaries), CVS repository, etc.  This is a single
  CD product containing only what is necessary to install FreeBSD and
  some of the optional software for it.  For the casual experimenter or
  person new to FreeBSD, it represents excellent value for the price. ]
