2.2 is the latest version of Caldera. It is much more up to date. I agree
with your "ill will" comment. I
generally throw my old CDs out because I prefer to point beginners to
cheapbytes. Handing a beginner an old CD is doing them a disservice.

I believe Caldera have done this with OL2.2. We don't have enough
programmers to write GUI installs, but the commercial  distributors (
notably RH / Caldera / SuSE ) are
putting substantial developement muscle into installation issues, and the
installations have vastly improved over the last year ( and continuing in
the right direction )
