There's another such system from the 'Beschaffungsamt' in Bonn, jFYI.

As far as I know, yes. However, these CD's will be *sold*, so we
would actually trying to ruin them if we distribute them gratis.
This should be coordinated somehow, it would be *very* bad if LTeV
would end up with n-200 CD's (with n like 5k or 10k) for which they
also paid.

Oh, btw. It's planned to make an installation on hd of Knoppix.
I'm pretty sure, Klaus would appreciate a helping hand... (hint hint)
