InfoMagic did the same thing...it was rather dissapointing. Earlier this year 
when I first decided to leave redhat and try debian I also ordered th enewest
LDR from Infomagic and noticed SuSE on a CD and Debian not.

I think this is more because 2.0 is still unstable and the latest "Stable" 
debian is in many way sexactly the same as their releace of the CD back in 

I hope that when we get 2.0 releaced they we re-include it (certainly
I can't fault them with using SuSE instead of Debian in their january
releace..I would have probaly done the same thing if  I was them)

In any case I think I will still subscribe to the InfoMagic LDR
because of the Sunsite archives et al. (tho I supose I could get off
my lazy ass and use the network at work to download files and image the CDs
myself...but then again..it is a PITA to do (fun trying to download 650 MB of
files and then make an ISO image when you only have 700 MB of total free
disk space)
