That's very interesting. However, I might want to wait before
considering publicising the IFSO CD this widely. I've tried it
and, while it's really great (Good one, David!), I would have a few
reservations before doing what you suggest.
* We might be swamped with people looking for support. We're just not
  big enough and, besides, this isn't our core mission.
* It is a little over-branded as an IFSO production. Although it
  clearly states that it is "based on Morphix", I think that we might want
  to return one of their splash screens and include some more
  information about the precise relationship between our and their
* I don't think the IFSO CD has the Irish dial-up specifics (not that
  I know much about that stuff).

If they are looking for a CD image fast, I think the safer bet might be
to go for a standard Knoppix or Morphix image.

Talking about the CDs: They were all gone from the conference last
night. If anyone has the time and technology, could they burn a few
more. I'll collect them and drop them over, if necessary.

Good luck,
