That would be great, but would you be able to bring along a machine to burn
cd's from that has a cd writter & an ethernet card? We (at the SLUG) are able
to download and mirror most things as long as we're given enough warning, but
we're going to be running short of machines that can burn things...
I've currently got Mandrake 8.2 3 cd version, Redhat 7.2/7.3 beta & openoffice
641d mirrored so anyone with a laptop & ethernet card or willing to carry a
desktop box with an ethernet card to the event will be able to download it.
Suse 8.0 is pretty much the only distro we can't give away as well - Suse
don't do download editions of their iso's like other distros, and we don't
really have enough time to create iso's from thousands of rpm's :/

With all this talk of cd burning would you like me to bring some cdr along
as I have 25 still in shrink wrap, cost £3.75 or something from
121cdr.co.uk work out at around 13p each, so would be willing to sell or
swap for something, 7/8 blank cd's for a copy of Suse 8, that sort of
thing. just to cover my costs really, so I can then get some more, can
also bring some cd wallets to protect them on the journey home 5p each
£5.00 for 100, so I we should have plenty to go around, can also bring cd
pens. (my rucksack is getting heavy already).
I have also found some floppy disk buried within my box of bits, at home so
will bring them too, (starting to see large box of bits building up here).
I would be interested in Suse 8.0 if possible, as I want to upgrade my
current system and possibly think about really dumping windoze having just
reinstalled then getting a virus, WineX and wine should make it possible
to run half life and c&c through Linux, If I get down to a proper hacking
run and make it work.
No problem bringing open office, 641d. I can also bring a partition
magic 4 boot disk. unless someone else has a later version they can create
a boot disk from.
