   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. :-)
