I'm sure he meant is there a video that shows the steps taken to complete the install. This will also list hardware requirements, but in short it does depend on what you want, I run BSD on a pentium m, 1ghz with 1gb ram and it runs sweet. You could run it on lesser hardware without a problem...

Other than the hand book and reading the section on installation I'd have a look in YouTube and see if there are any instructional videos.
