I had a similar idea. That way anyone burning CD's would *ALL* be in
sync with each other, suppling the same product, and a lot less
confusion in case someone leaves something out by accident.

Who's going to make the master? And I guess it should be bootable.

I think a list on the Indy site would be OK, let the interested person
contact whomever is closest to them that's on the list.

Great, but I found a bug in the installer. Copying two incorrect file
names. No big deal, you'll just get the unneeded boot images if you
pick the 6.0-0.2 "Smart" download.

No, what files are not on the server?

Wget's great isn't it. If get interupted it will redial if you have
dial-up networking set to auto dial.

I will make choosing a drive available in the improved version, as well
as other features. As far as being demanding, you are just giving me
ideas and feedback, something programmers need to get the job done
correctly. I can't think of EVERYTHING by my self 8*))

If you get anymore ideas, I'm all eyes!
