If you have an ISO image, that would be keen. I don't actually know what
they ought to consist of -- I think the NoCD directory is named that because
you can't put it on CD. :)
In any case, yes, the two primary seul servers don't have space for a CD
image currently. If you could offer it from your ftp site, that would be a
good thing. If bandwidth becomes an issue (meaning people are actually
using it and wanting it), then I can move it to the primary seul servers.
Alternatively, Pete has gotten gavi.biol.mcgill.ca back online -- it's a
pretty weak cpu, but he's got a gig of drive space he can put towards seul.
It hasn't been the most stable of machines lately, so we'd want to have a
backup of anything we put on it.

You mean rawhide? (ftp rawhide.redhat.com? i don't remember offhand.) It's
still way unstable these days, compared to something we would want to give
an end-user.
