That is why the differentails directory was made for.

Installtion by modem would require over 24 hours and that if you are
not too heavy handed on what you select.  In Europe this is far more
expensive than a boxed distribution.

The next Indy will use the 6.0 and not the 6.1 installer: there are
bugs I don't have the resources to fix and in addition the install
does not support multiple CDs, given that the 6.1 installer needs 50
Megs of CD space I prefer use the space for programs useful after the
install.  A nice install is great for marketing but the easiest
install is go to Lug.  But a LUG wil not solve your problems of
_using_ Linux.
