Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is the Debian operating system using the FreeBSD kernel in place of the Linux kernel.
debian.gnu.kfreebsd.i386.hd_image.gz is a 10GB raw hard disk image with Debian GNU/kFreeBSD for i386 designed to be run on qemu. It has all updates installed as of November 23, 2008. It *should* also work on real hardware by writing to a hard disk with some tweaking of the file /etc/network/interfaces, updating the file with the correct device name of your network interface card. There is no password for root and no additional user accounts created. Because the OS is currently under active development, some packages will not be installable. However, by invoking the command "apt-get install xserver-xorg kdm kdebase" you should be able to get a working basic install of KDE.
Note: If you install on actual hardware and use a USB mouse, you should upgrade to the FreeBSD-7.0 kernel. The package "kfreebsd-image-7.0-1-686" will provide this.
Note: The timezone is set for America/Denver, if this is not correct for your location, change it by invoking the command "configure-debian" and use the text based menu.
Note: Avoid using GDM as it is somewhat buggy.
