March 7th? That must be a test release... From debian/News:
Exactly on the revised schedule, at 00:00 GMT, March 9, Debian 2.1
(codenamed slink) was released.

Hmm, I only have some test images at home not the final release. Something
like a day before the release or so (I remember I burned the image late
sunday night...). But the images are working fine, I did a complete install
with them. The only trouble I have is that the two images were mastered on
different days (I downloaded them on different days...) so that I have some
problems installing with apt/multi-cd or whatever. But selecting with
dselect and installing "by_hand" with dpkg -iGROEB works fine.
