RE: CD Images

Okay, I got some strange message back saying that you could not receive
messages in HTML format.  I am resending this as plain text.  I don't
know why that restriction is there.  It is not possible for HTML to
contain a virus.  Maybe you guys have had a problem with stupid people
clicking on links within HTML messages and downloading EXEs.

You guys make this way too hard.  I don't like Red Hat, but I can see
now why people use it.  They have a quick link to download the ISO
files.  You guys make people read through pages of info to find berried
in the middle of a text file somewhere the command to use that
Pseudo-Image thingy that most of us have never used before.  I know you
are trying to save bandwidth but I think this makes it too difficult.

The method of installing from the internet sounds neat, but not all of
us have MS-DOS installed on our computer, intact now that a version of
NT is out for home use the amount of people that do will slow fall to
nothing.  I didn't really want to create a FAT partition and use a DOS
boot disk just to run that install.bat file.
