Assuming that no-one wants the mirror that I vaguely offered on
debian-hardware - do you want me to start producing DVD images for some
of the smaller architectures? I can shove in the other 160G drive -
if you can tell me _exactly_ what's needed, I can build them fairly
quickly [I followed your instructions previously and now have a mirror
from ftp.uk.debian.org updated nightly - building the images for CD's
and DVD's takes no time once I've the jigdo files currently]
