I feel it's not at all discouraged even though you are asking for BSD
on a Linux list :-P

In case you don't get a positive response after a few days and you
really still need it, please mention the exact ISO file
(location/version etc) you want (CD or DVD) then I will download and
burn it for you - plus it gives me an excuse to try it out myself in a
VM too :-)

You can then simply bring me a blank CD-R (or DVD-R) or the approx
cost of a blank disc (say Rs 10 for CD or Rs 20 for DVD?) to either my
house in Hadapsar (on a weekend) or my office on Dhole Patil Road (on
a weekday) and collect your copy of FreeBSD 7.

I think this is usually the same process followed here by people
exchanging Free software... alternate option I believe is to attend a
monthly PLUG meeting and make a request for a copy before the event.

Cheers,
Vishal
