>- SECURITY AND ERRATA --------------------------------------------------
>We provide patches for known security threats and other important
>issues discovered after each CD release.  As usual, between the
>creation of the OpenBSD 3.9 FTP/CD-ROM binaries and the actual 3.9
>release date, our team found and fixed some new reliability problems
>(note: most are minor and in subsystems that are not enabled by
>default).  Our continued research into security means we will find
>new security problems -- and we always provide patches as soon as
>possible.  Therefore, we advise regular visits to
>        http://www.OpenBSD.org/security.html
>	http://www.OpenBSD.org/errata.html
>Security patch announcements are sent to the security-announce en OpenBSD.org
>mailing list.  For information on OpenBSD mailing lists, please see:
>	http://www.OpenBSD.org/mail.html
>We wish to draw special attention to the new sendmail errata that
>missed our release cycle.  By default sendmail does not answer remote
>requests, but the patch supplied is worth applying.
>	http://www.OpenBSD.org/errata.html#sendmail
>- CD-ROM SALES ---------------------------------------------------------
>OpenBSD 3.9 is also available on CD-ROM.  The 3-CD set costs $45USD
>(EUR 45) and is available via mail order and from a number of
>contacts around the world.  The set includes a colourful booklet
>which carefully explains the installation of OpenBSD.  A new set
>of cute little stickers is also included (sorry, but our FTP mirror
>sites do not support STP, the Sticker Transfer Protocol).  As an
>added bonus, the second CD contains an audio track, a song entitled
>"Blob!".  Lyrics (and an explanation) for the song may be found at:
>    http://www.OpenBSD.org/lyrics.html#39
>Profits from CD sales are the primary income source for the OpenBSD
>project -- in essence selling these CD-ROM units ensures that OpenBSD
>will continue to make another release six months from now.
>The OpenBSD 3.9 CD-ROMs are bootable on the following five platforms:
>  o i386
>  o amd64
>  o macppc
>  o sparc
>  o sparc64 (UltraSPARC)
>(Other platforms must boot from floppy, network, or other method).

>- T-SHIRT SALES --------------------------------------------------------
>The project continues to expand its funding base by selling t-shirts

>as a selection of OpenSSH t-shirts.
>- FTP INSTALLS ---------------------------------------------------------
>If you choose not to buy an OpenBSD CD-ROM, OpenBSD can be easily
>installed via FTP.  Typically you need a single small piece of boot
>media (e.g., a boot floppy) and then the rest of the files can be
>installed from a number of locations, including directly off the
>Internet.  Follow this simple set of instructions to ensure that
>you find all of the documentation you will need while performing
>an install via FTP.  With the CD-ROMs, the necessary documentation
>is easier to find.

>Note: If you end up needing to write a raw floppy using Windows,
>      you can use "fdimage.exe" located in the pub/OpenBSD/3.9/tools
>      directory to do so.
>- X.ORG FOR MOST ARCHITECTURES -----------------------------------------
>X.Org has been integrated more closely into the system.  This release
>contains X.Org 6.9.0.  Most of our architectures ship with X.Org, including
>amd64, sparc, sparc64 and macppc.  During installation, you can install
>X.Org quite easily.  Be sure to try out xdm(1) and see how we have
>customized it for OpenBSD.
>On the i386 platform a few older X servers are included from XFree86
>3.3.6.  These can be used for cards that are not supported by X.Org
>or where X.Org support is buggy.  Please read the /usr/X11R6/README file
>for post-installation information.
>- PORTS TREE -----------------------------------------------------------
>The OpenBSD ports tree contains automated instructions for building
>third party software.  The software has been verified to build and
>run on the various OpenBSD architectures.  The 3.9 ports collection,
>including many of the distribution files, is included on the 3-CD
>set.  Please see the PORTS file for more information.
>Note: some of the most popular ports, e.g., the Apache web server
>and several X applications, come standard with OpenBSD.  Also, many
>popular ports have been pre-compiled for those who do not desire
>to build their own binaries (see BINARY PACKAGES, below).
>- BINARY PACKAGES WE PROVIDE -------------------------------------------
>A large number of binary packages are provided.  Please see the PACKAGES
>file (ftp://ftp.OpenBSD.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.9/PACKAGES) for more details.
>- SYSTEM SOURCE CODE ---------------------------------------------------
>The CD-ROMs contain source code for all the subsystems explained
>above, and the README (ftp://ftp.OpenBSD.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.9/README)
>file explains how to deal with these source files.  For those who
>are doing an FTP install, the source code for all four subsystems
>can be found in the pub/OpenBSD/3.9/ directory:
>        XF4.tar.gz     ports.tar.gz   src.tar.gz     sys.tar.gz
>- THANKS ---------------------------------------------------------------
