    Yes, there is a bootable .ISO file for floppy diskettes and cd's that you can find in the OBSD mirrors under (example) cd38.iso. They are nothing more than 5MB I believe and it's just something to boot off of, you must fetch the other stuff like the kernel through a network connection. If you feel this is too much work then make your own .iso, here's a guide: http://www.pantz.org/os/openbsd/makingaopenbsdcd.shtml this is useful because you can just use the files off of your custom .iso instead of waiting for the install to finish. OpenBSD doesn't have an official and full .iso because they want you to buy their product, which I can understand.

    Also - reading the documentation could have helped out a bit. OpenBSD documentation used to be poor (just what I have heard). Of course that's not how it is today. There are plenty of resources out there.
