You can get the package slink-cd from the archive and with a current
mirror you can build your own cds.
If you want to make your own cds from potato have a look at the
ongoing efforts in email@example.com (see mailinglist
If you only want to have a cd, which you can use to install the base
system (i.e. the system you get after installing the base floppy
discs), you have to have a look at slink-cd, which steps it performs
so that the boot-floppies are installed into a directory tree
correctly. Make sure the "base.tar.gz" is in the tree, too and burn
this tree to a cd.
