Re: Anyone else have CheapBytes CD trouble?
Yes, i had a similar problem over a year ago with Slink(2.1) i got a 2
cd set and not only did they only send me 1 cd out of the 2, the 1 cd
they sent was useless, it was FULL of curropted archives.
cheapbytes is cheap shit, they will never get my business again(they
never returned calls or emails about my stuff), i suggest using
www.linuxmall.com if you want cheap linux cds(i haven't had any problems
with them yet) also i'd avoid CDRd cds as well as they are sometimes
difficult to read in normal cdroms, getting the "real" pressed cds can
take several weeks from release but it is worth the wait.
