The Debain-Nonprofit Custom Distro has made bootable Debian-CDs the
first order of business and the good news is that we're essentially
there -- I've been botting off bootable Debain-NP CDs all weekend.

We're not using Knoppix but rather the Knoppix-deritive Morphix
because it seems to be a bit more modular and, more importantly,
because the main Morphix developer, Alex de Landgraf, has been involved
with Debain-NP since the beginning.

At the very least, we can document the process of making these CDs and
we can work with whoever plans on packaging these.

Mako
