Since there are only a fews days left, until the final image for our
LinuxTag CD will be mastered, I am now putting things
together. The following is a list of the components I am using to make
the CDROM. It would be nice, if you could carefully check it and tell
me, if there is anything wrong or if I have forgotten
something. Please remember: The last day to get changes into the CDROM
will be tomorrow.
