Default BSD sizes

I would like to mess around with several BSD flavors. I can spare only 2~2.5 G harddrive space on my laptop for experimentation.

I looked thru the BIG 3 sites but was only able to determine that OpenBSD can be installed, very minimally, in roughly 700~750 M. What about Free or NetBSD? Or any other for that matter.

Is it possible to learn about BSD on such a small system? I only would like to use a small browser and a fluxbox-or-less wm. Any encouragement or suggestions...or am I whistling up my butt?

Any responses appreciated. Thanks.
