I have 2 machines running bo. One upgraded from 1.2.x by installing
packages. One installed from the "bad" 3/13/97 disks. Both required some
manual intervention.

I have a 540mb drive emptied for test purposes. I will be doing a "newbie"
install from the newer disks this week. I will do this several times in
order to test installing base from floppies, from nfs, and from CD. I will
cut a CD-R for this purpose. I see the changes to bo slowing down and hamm
starting to grow. I guess this means that a prototype 1.3 CD cut today
would be reasonably close to the official release. Agreed?

If this works perhaps I will have my wife do an installation. She has no
experience with rawrite or dselect at all, but she loves me and the Debian
distribution with all her heart. :-)
