Yes, they look old, but when i looked at benchmarks, and performed
my own, it actually was pretty good. :)

Go to http://www.debian.org/ , search for "CD ISO images" and folow link,
then on next page search for phrase "For older releases, ....".
Hope this clue will help. ;)

(Last iso of version 5.0.8 for alpha is from Jan/Feb 2011! :)

Hope there will be lennyandhalf, similary to etchandhalf, with kernel
and xorg, and few other hard things from squeezy or testing,
as it will be semi-squeezy, and could somehow improve alpha support. :)
