CD install of 1.3

I created an "Official CD", but I think I'll wait for another round of bug
fixes before uploading an image or sending anyone a CD.

Debian 1.3 looks EXCELLENT. I installed the system in front of a Pixar
engineer who was taking it home, and he was very impressed. The installation
program found the files in disks-i386/current right away, and installation
only took one CD. I will put "loadlin" on my next CD and try for a
no-CD install. Good job Sven and Dale! The "menu" stuff worked right away
using fvwm95-2. Very nice.

I had about a dozen bugs or mis-features show up during installation, none
fatal though some would have stopped a novice. I'll detail them in my next

This release is going to be awesome. Great job, folks!
