Dale Scheetz has one at Linux Press,


It comes with a four Debian Linux 2.1 CDs, source and binary, and 
30 days of free email support. The registration slip has the email
address on it, copy it down before you send in your registration.

I have the books for the Debian 2.0 and the 2.1 versions, they are
quite good. The book can be downloaded free from the Linux Press web

Orielly, VA Research (a distributor of Linux workstations) and
someone else provide a package with Debian and an Orielly book. The
package I got free at the Atlanta Linux Showcase Thursday had only
one binary disk in it, along with the Orielly book. I have not had
time to examine the book or CD but if this is as good as other
Orielly books, it is fine. "They say" that this book can also be
downloaded free.

Hope this helps.

Debian GNU/Linux Because software support is free, timely,
                 useful, technically accurate, and friendly.
