Heh. Last time I tried it wasn't too hard, this is pretty easy.

* "Getting Debian" near the beginning of the top row
* "make a CD set yourself" in the middle
* "Fetch full CD images"
* Official CD images of the "stable" release - see below

So now we're even at least as far as those links are concerned.

The last item, OTOH, still needs work both at redhat.com and debian.org.
They have a single link to ftp://ftp.redhat.com/ and we have a bunch of
links elsewhere; both of these approaches, even without implementation bugs,
have inherent problems.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
