Okay. You have a better feel than I do for how much data this takes.
There's currently 5GB free on alpha.gnu.org - so perhaps that will be
the best staging area.
Do you have an login account on there? That ftp server has a limit of
10 users (or something low like that to keep the T1 usable). I think
that you probably shouldn't have to compete with other people to try
and get the CD built.
I gotta ding ding dang a dang a long ding dong.
