Hi, sorry about the late reply on this.

Tux4kids had their .org domain highjacked.  We are working on legal
recourse right now (Tux4Kids is a quasi OSEF sponsored project, and Sam
Hart, the project lead of Tux4Kids is on the OSEF board of directors).

You can currently try tux4kids.com  Also the OSEF website is going
through a rework, and will soon be fully updated.

Not much if the CD is documented.

Most of the packages on it can be seen by the command "dpkg -l"

We are not currently working with anyone in the NetBSD project, though
if you have contact you would like us to work with please let me know.
