This article is meant as an introductory guide for those who approach FreeSBIE for the first time, but also for the experienced user who wants to have a brief introduction to the new environment.

1. Introduction

FreeSBIE is a LiveCD based on the FreeBSD Operating system, or even easier, a FreeBSD-based operating system that works directly from a CD, without touching your hard drive.

The only thing you have to do is to insert a FreeSBIE cd in your cdrom drive.

FreeSBIE 1.1 is based on FreeBSD 5.3 and comes up with a collection of FREE software you could try and love (see later for descriptions).

With FreeSBIE you will be able to surf the Internet, to have a nice multimedia experience, to meet your friends with cool chat programs and to evaluate a real FreeBSD system without the pain to install it.
