Big hint:  read the OpenBSD faq from the website (grab it with wget:

wget -c -k -r -p -np -I /faq -X /faq/de,/faq/pf/de,/faq/fr,/faq/pf/fr,/faq/nl,/faq/pf/nl,/faq/pl,/faq/pf/pl,/faq/pt,/faq/pf/pt http://www.openbsd.org/faq/index.html

This limits the recursion to stick to the faq on the website.

Its available as pdf but its not kept as up-to-date.

Of course, the best way to install OpenBSD is to spend the $50 and by a
CD set.  You should still read the faq.

The installer acts as a weed-eater: it weeds out users who don't read
the docs.  If you don't read, the partioner will kill you.  Everything
in the install is text based and quasi command-line.  Its small and very
fast once you understand it (full install in about 3 minutes except for
disk I/O time).

If you really like OpenBSD, get the one book on it: Absolute OpenBSD by
Nostarch press.
