Aside from the fact that it is non-responsive, this is not
the place to chide someone for not purchasing one of your
company's pricey (e.g., $25 for 2 CDs) CD sets.
The subject is official NetBSD ISO images.
There is exactly one non-package i386 official NetBSD ISO image
(the install CD) and at < 97 MB it doesn't include source.
Please refer to ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/iso/1.5.2
I was making a helpful suggestion on the subject of putting
source on an official NetBSD ISO image.
Let's stay on-subject, please.
