The information regarding the sponsor came in a few hours later... so we
won't have to burn any x86 CDs except for testing.

They are 186 MB mini Woody Iso Images for x86, alpha, m86k and ppc

"The ISOs are small enough to burn to a 8 cm (3 inch) CD-R/RW (although
they'll also work on 12 cm/5 inch CD-R/RW media), and contain enough
packages to install a functional version of Debian woody without going
to the net -- all packages from required, important and standard are
included, as are emacs21, postfix, ssh, and gnupg when they fit.  A
complete list of included packages is available in the .packages file
for each architecture."

We also need them in case people bring boxes that don't have a running
OS and can't boot off CD...
