I grabbed i386 and source, at the moment I'm producing a dlt tape that
I'll send to the pressing plant, then wait to hear from them that its ok
Trouble is they use a proprietary format produced by dvd mastering
software, I said all they needed was an old 486 with a big hard disk
running Debian - I'd send them a dlt containing the iso and all they had
to do was run tar -xvf /dev/nst0 , but they remained unconvinced.
Still the cost is going against their R&D budget ...
If that fails I'm getting a dvd-r machine tomorrow and will send them 2 x
dvd-r which should work.
