I'm hoping to (finally!) get some work done on this tomorrow at work. The
mirror we keep has had a nightmare over the last month - sunsite.org.uk
going down, a local disk failure etc. I went in to work yesterday
(Saturday) to check up on things and all seems to be going again now. So I
should be able to get some testing done and you'll get feedback from me.

If all seems to work reasonably then I'll be convinced to make the swap
and discontinue work on debian-cd/slink-cd. Debian-cd would need a lot of
munging right now to produce workable potato CDs, and even more for
potential future stuff like DVD/Zip/Jazz installation images. 

And as/when/if I get the Copious Free Time I'm waiting on...

Cool. The mirror at work is a full one and I now have enough spare disk
space that I should be able to generate images for all platforms. 
Unfortunately we're firewalled so I can't offer them for ftp. I'll see
what I can do in that respect...
