It might also serve as a “rescue disc” as it contains more functionality than the ramdisk kernel used for installation and upgrade. The ramdisk kernel is included on the disc for installation of the standard OS, not the LiveCD/LiveDVD image.

To be clear, these make testing of the OS easier. You cannot install these OS images onto hard drive, and they are not intended to advocate OpenBSD as the “OS for the masses.”

These discs include the ramdisk kernel for installation of OpenBSD from other media or the network. To boot it, just type bsd.rd at the “boot>” prompt. Installation is described in FAQ 4.
