Re: availability of pre-1.2 distributions
Yes, I think there is a shortage for keeping three distributions (the
next, this and the last). Have a look at the list archives (ftp:, not
http:) because I'm sure someone gave an address where they keep an
accessible mirror of 1.1. My own solution is to build up a collection of
my .deb packages on a zip disk before allowing dselect to remove them.
(This helps with cloning machines too.)
