Some time ago I had a plan to benchmark several OS'es for fun&learning. As it turned out, due to the lack of time the process was very slow. I intend to do DragonFlyBSD next, so I'm asking: what would be the best way to install it? Download the bootable ISO (from http://www.dragonflybsd.org/main/download.cgi) and then upgrade to -current via cvs? Is there a somewhat step-by-step walkthrough of the process since, as I understand it there is no install/setup program?

Also, if anybody has some performance-related patches, now would be a good time to commit them to CVS :)

(Current results are in http://geri.cc.fer.hr/~ivoras/osbench/osbench.sxc; Summary: FreeBSD 5.2 is slower in synthetic tests but appears surprisingly better in a "real-world" test than 4.9).
