How about:-

    64-bit DVDs (2 per set or could 6.2 be 'squashed' onto one DVD?)
    32 & 64-bit LIVE CDs

It would mean 1 DVD and 2 CDs were required for one pack of disks which
could be handed-out with a request the recipient shares the disks with

Volunteers - ask on main list - could do 10 of the DVD or CD and post
them to an address in England, BRD etc. of intending FOSDEM attendees.

Universities should, ideally, have people possessing enquiring minds.
That is one distributing place. A walk around Brussels handing-out
CDs/DVDs could get rid of more. Belgium has 3 languages: German,
Belgium-French and Belgium-Dutch (Vlaams). English is understood by most
computer fans. Mingling with the population and distributing disks
should be fairly easy and an enjoyable experience.
