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.
