    You are correct. It is available, but only to club members at the moment.

    I downloaded 10.1, and I am happy for the most part.

    First of all, I have been connecting to my router by stringing an ugly LAN cable across my apartment. I could never get my wireless card work. As soon as I upgraded to 10.1, the card started working! Of course now I have new things to be paranoid about such as how often to change my static WEP Keys; my router doesn't support dynamic WEP. I live in a rural area, and I doubt my neighbors know that I even have a wireless network. With ESSID broadcast off, and WEP on, they are probably clueless. But perhaps there are some techies areound I do not know about.

    On the downside, it took forever for the user name and password screen to appear after X started. But it is not doing it anymore. I am not sure if it started acting normally due to something I did , or if it was just the natural progession of things.

    Also, I noticed that several of my icons on my desktop were messed up. (The image was gone and they would not launch the application). I had to delete them and start over with new icons. This was minor; it only took me a few seconds to fix.

    Other than that, I am happy with 10.1 at the moment - I don't have to look at an ugly LAN cable anymore!!!

    I am not going to give you the torrent, but I would be willling to mail a couple of you burned CDs. I believe I can do this under the GPL - right? I will give you the first 3 CDs.

    Here are my rules.

    1. I am doing this for free, so I keep the right to limit the number of CDs I will mail.
    2. I will only mail CDs to locations in the United States.
    3. Email me if you are interested. inetman2 -at- yahoo -dott- com

    Just so you know:

    It is 100% legal to re-distribute copies of GPL'd software that you paid for.
