If you have read what Santiago wrote, you know that those images are
useless for "end users" unless they just want to upgrade from woody to
sarge with CD because they don't have a good net connection.

Do NOT offer those images without BIG warnings explaining that those
images are for testing only and that the installation process launched
by booting those images will probably not work (and possibly even damage
your system). Please also note that the documentation included in the CD
is not up-to-date with the installer that is used.
