I am just getting started with anoncvs, but the
text below raises question in my mind.

These instructions refer to sys.tar.gz and src.tar.gz,
but on my 3.6 cdrom #3 are src.tar.gz (sys?) and ports.tar.gz (src?)

X4 and src are shown as unzipped to /usr while ports is shown
to be unzipped to /usr/src. I would have assumed that all three
gz files would be unpacked to /usr/src, but that does not seem
to be the case.

So I am confused. Can someone make sure that what is documented in
http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html is correct for working from the
3.6 cdroms?
