ok. i'm just wondering how SuSE and anybody else who gives it out on CDs
gets away with it. when i tell my friends they should try debian instead of
the usual distributions, everything's peachy until i tell them it doesn't
include java (we're doing java as part of cs). "what!? you mean i have to
download the jdk AND netscape!?" the jdk is getting bigger all the time
too, so the chances of downloading it over slow links are getting slimmer.
i guess this means we need an installer package like we used to have for
netscape which sucks in the blackdown tarball and sticks the files in all
the right places. i don't know how to make ordinary packages i'm afraid,
never mind installer packages. although if anybody wants to take it on i'm
willing to help in any way that i can.
