I've been considering to install Hurd for some months.  At first I looked
at www.gnu.org but I didn't want to get the entire gnu-0.2 tar file.
Even if I could access the internet from home, it would take several
weeks to get 70 MB. If I downloaded it from here (college), I would
need several boxes of floppies to take it home...
Maybe someone else has these problems too?
Is it feasible to create a CD, or is too early?

I've got some Debian packages (gnumach, hurd, libc, etc) but there are
some problems when running dpkg from Linux (which have been discussed in
this list already).
