I have a CD here (in my laptop) produced by Baen, with the complete texts of a number of their books on, which they gave me for free when I purchased my copy of War of Honor. It, however, fails to make the copyright distribution and licensing of this material clear.

Is it legal or ethical for me to put it on my webserver for my own use away from the CD?

It is both legal and ethical - baen have explicitly stated that are happy for you to freely distribute the CD to anybody, provided that you don't charge for it.

You should have had an "unsure" option.

...it's very probably legal, too, but my copyright knowledge is geared towards older stuff...
