Yes, it seems your mail was dropped by spam filters (at I least I had to
fish it out there). However, your first mail didn't contain much
information. So thanks for coming back to us with a more detailed

Yes, due to space and bandwidth consideration (and out of consideration
for our mirror network), not all images for all architectures (and
source discs count for us as a architecture when it comes to the images)
are available for direct download. See
http://www.debian.org/CD/faq/#not-all-images. However, you can create
the missing images very easily via "jigdo".
Please note however, that the four regular iso images already contain
all the source packages shipped in Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.8. The Update
DVD only contains the source packages changed between Debian GNU/Linux
5.0.7 and 5.0.8. The update images are provided as a service for those
who downloaded the 5.0.7 images, so they don't need to download
everything again, but can just get a smaller update disc. So if you
already have downloaded the 5.0.8 images, you won't need the update disc.
