I was only trying to save people the frustration of downloading a vast
file only to find that they'd just wasted their time & money because
it didn't fit on a normal CD.

Please don't try to read some sort of "anti-non-intel conspiracy"
thing into this.

Also, please don't assume that just because the test-cycle-1 CDs were
a failure for a particular architecture, that that architecture will
not get a 2.2 release at the end of the day.  That's why we're doing
the test runs after all.

If people have the time to build & test their own m68k & powerpc CDs,
and report their findings, I'm sure that will be at least as useful as
people downloading & testing the ones from cdimage.d.o, so please go

Cheers, Phil.
