I for one would love to see this...
I think it would be great to make sure archives of debian are made as
far back as possible (hell you can still download linux kernel
version .99 somewhere...) I don't even have a DVD ROM drive yet but
I would love to have a copy of such a disk.

would be nice to also get all the mailing list archives on the disk too.
hmmm and an image of the www.debian.org website...
