This reminds me, there was some talk of making labels for the CDs a
while back. Does anyone know what came of that? It'd be nice to have
something that looks a little nicer than "GnuWin II" written in black
ink on a blank disc.

(I don't mean any of this to sound like help isn't welcome...just trying
to direct help into the most benificial direction.) I believe we've
already got some (300?) professionally made Knoppix discs. I'm not
positive they've got them for WEF, but I'm pretty sure they'll be there
by GTC (I haven't heard much on this lately.) Also, I don't think they
wouldn't be appreciated, but we should probably keep consistent with the
CDs we're giving out. I know we've already got quite a few GnuWinII CDs,
and throwing TheOpenCD into the mix might just be confusing. I know last
year at GTC we had a laminated list of what was included on GnuWin that
we could point people to.

I'd also double check that you've got the latest version of what you
plan to burn. I've been (and others as well) burning GnuWin 2.3beta. It
looks like Knoppix is also at version 3.4 now.

As far as whether they will fit on a CD, you've gotta remember that 1MB
= 1024KB. So that gnuwin 2.2 iso at 717,458KB is only 700.64MB

P.S. I've nearly got 50 GnuWin CDs ready to bring to WEF tomorrow. I'll
have another 50 by setup time for GTC.
