This means the setup program on the CD has to be modified, as well as the
boot disks. Hand off the Jean now. :-)

I say no floppies, and have boot disk creation directions on the label.
One of the reasons I was talking about a standard label. :-) I don't like
mailing floppies, because you know they will ship next to the industrial
magnets, and we will have to support that. :-)

Actually, I would say distributors choice. <under a week> Some places
UPS is good, others will want USPS. Others may have a FedEx account that
makes it easy for them. As long as it gets there within a week, it should
not matter. Let's make it easy on the poor guy we are not paying. :-)
