Does anyone have any NIXes they need downloaded/burned?

I remember someone was wanting SuSE 7.3 Pro, and I have that in full now (Well, CD 3 is redownloading, should be done shortly). I have pretty much everything else there is, so if anyone needs a copy of something or would like to try a new NIX, give me a shout.

Figure 2$ flat for burning/labelling (labelling optional and done by sharpie), discs at cost, shipping at cost.

Anyone interested?

Not sure. AdamLongWalker and I were working on a few, then we just sort of drifted away from it. No Paypal account yet, though I'm starting to think I should get one.

Hey, that would be nice. But $2 is a little too rich--hey, I have cable! :smile: I think I have like a buck in my PayPal account, but since you don't take PayPal...yet, well...

PMFJI, but I thought SuSE officially discouraged ISO images, etc. Last time I looked they had an FTP install procedure, but would not post CD images. Has this changed ?? I still don't see and ISO's on their FTP site. Oh well, real Linux junkies use Debian anyway. :razz:

Debian all the way.

I've been studiously avoiding looking into the legality of these SuSE ISOs. I don't want to know, just in case.

DMG - Well, yeah, but what if you DIDN'T have that cable? Those are the folks I'm primarily thinking of.

Forge - cool, don't ask, don't tell. I find SuSE's policy on ISO's rather silly anyway - RedHat has a very enlightened approach to ISO's, and they are clobbering SuSE in sales. My posting was mostly a head's up, didn't want you to get blind sided. Once I figured out apt-get, I haven't had to download any ISO's anyway. Happy nude year! :smile:

Fneh. Once you get past the non-installer, Debian is better anyway. :razz:

Forge I don't imagine you would be willing to tell us where we could download a copy? I have been trying to get a copy of SUSE but have not been having much luck.

A friend and I have been itching to give linux another go but we wanted to try different distributions.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
