I looked at your website to review the distribution.  We would be more than
happy to offer it our website to customers.  A few things which are helpful
in us offering something.

If you have an ISO image available, then we can offer it pretty quickly.  Just
provide an ftp location of the ISO and the md5sum value and we can download

Let us know and we can go from there.
