We (me and Tim) have a total of 30 knoppix 5 cd's.  

I have d/l iso of theopencd, burned and tested.  Stable.  Dig this...it's also 
a live ubuntu cd!!!  This is sooo bitchin.  I will burn 25 on QUALITY cd's 
(last time I did this they were cheap cd's and caused people's pcs to lock 

How bout some freesmug cd?  Never heard of them but would like to see it.  Is 
it a live cd?

Didn't we receive some Kubuntu/ubuntu cd's that were shipped?  

One very important thing.  Lugod member Tim Riley  and I found that booting a 
knoppix cd into a system that has wifi will cause it to crash.  Not only did 
it do this to my custom pc but my daghters dell as well.  I have googled and 
found that this is a known problem.  Some sites state that boot option 
knoppix failsafe will eliviate this but it doesn't.  I also tried knoppix 
noapm nodhcp acpi=off  and that almost worked but it failed to load agp pkg 
for eth1 (my wifi).  Need a solution.

I have a couple of other live disks as well like mepis, kate, and something 
else that has escaped my memory for the time being.

Give me some feedback as to what I should do/burn/whathaveyou.

I still need literature, table(s), chairs, and other cd's that are now 
available.  I believe Ryan has table and chairs.  Bill correct me if I am 
wrong.  Does he also have literature or does that need to be printed as well?  
I will email him directly and ask if I can set up a pick up time.
