You know? What I hear most, from one of our CD vendors, is that they sell
all of the distributions on CD, and Debian purchasers complain an order of
magnitude more than all the other customers combined about little things
like this, that only require a bit of patience to resolve on your own.

Yes, rawrite is compressed in the tools directory, but it is available in
executable form in the disks directory, where you would expect to use it
on a disk image. Now maybe there should be some documentation on this that
doesn't already exist, but if the rawrite2.exe file can't be found in the
current directory, how is the documentation likely to be read?

Sorry if I sound irritated...
