You could install FreeBSD or Linux or some other
system first by PXE booting or whatever and then
just download XORP and install on top of that.

XORP is merely a routing application suite and can
be run on top of several different operating
systems. Perhaps you already have a computer
installed and ready to go.

Another option would be to try out Vyatta which is
Linux tightly coupled with XORP and a bunch of
other programs to provide more of a uniform router
feeling. You can take a look at www.vyatta.com,
though I don't think there is an installation
option other that CD for Vyatta either.
