I remember downloading 386BSD via ftpmail one floppy image at a time. And writing those images to soooo many floppies and again when some of them were corrupted. It took days to download and install 386BSD for the first time but eventually I got it up and running on an 386DX machine. The sense of awe and wonder I had when it finally booted was indescribable. Those were the days.
