How much do you pay for your dialup?  In the US dialups are commonly
$20/mo for unlimited access (though upgrading through it would be
slow).  How much is 8 guldens worth?  If it isn't much, then it is
probably just easier to get new CDs.  If all I had was a dialup line
then I would definitely get CDs for an initial install.

Do you know someone with a fast connection and a CD burner?  CDR's are
usually ~$1 US.  I have used this method in the past.
