in that directory are all the RPMS and corresponding SRPMS that make
Scyld'd release different from RedHat 6.2.  i'm afraid you won't find
recent .tar.gz's anywhere on the public ftp site, but it's easy enough
to suck .tar.gz's out of .rpm's.

ftp.scyld.com, but you can't get a .iso of the distribution.
