Answering Martin, I don't have enough free space to setup a
mirror, I would do so if I had, but I currently take along with me a hard
drive from home to the university to dump the CD images... pretty

I would really apreciate that, I am sure the readers of the magazine
would like to have these beta if there is not a real release yet. Yesterday
I burned the official Debian 2.0 CDs (main and sources), so I have them in
case I don't get to the deadline. Also I will try to use them as much as
possible and file bug reports in order to see any bugs fixed for 2.0r1

By the way, I have had some user reports on some problems regarding
CD installing, but not enougth detailed to pinpoint the real problem. I will
be using the CD images I burned yesterday to do a full update to the two
Debian machines I have setup at home, this week, and I will possibly have
some bug reports on the installation.
One thing I haven't reported yet, thought it is more estethical than
technical is that in one of the dialog screens on configuring the net, the
dialog box is smaller than the text it contains which makes it look ugly..
to which package should I address bug reports? To Enrique Zanardi's boot-floppies?
Am i right?

Thanks for the offering Phil, I would really appreciate if you gave
me access to the copy at cdimage.debian.org. My deadline is set september
the 1st (maybe I can move it to another day same week).
Thanks for all your help.
