No problem, thanks for the problem report! :-)

The scripts we're using are in an area of the debian-cd svn:
and they're released every now and again in the "contrib" section of
the debian-cd package too. They're not very pretty, and they're quite
specific to our setup...

You've got it, yes. There's also not enough traffic generally to
justify mirroring them - the central cdimage server setup in Sweden
has a very good net connection already. It's only when we get massive
downloads for releases that we really need to spread the load.

Getting a SCSI chain working is perfectly simple if you remember that there
must be exactly three terminations: one on one end of the cable, one on the
far end, and the goat, terminated over the SCSI chain with a silver-handled
knife whilst burning *black* candles. --- Anthony DeBoer
