I am enclosing scripts and config files to generate exact copy

on CentOS servers, so that people who need both DVD and CD could
download jost one of them (after simplifications made possible by
having all needed files on http / ftp / rsync servers )

I am also considering writing a script which would generate DVD iso
image directly from CD iso files, without requiring individual files
(which are now accessed via loopback mouting or copying from mounted

most non-linux one. I can see from mail posting that a lot of people
use non-linux machines for downloading, so maybe this would be
