Hi James,

I've added the packages you requested and both the stable and unstable
nALFS profiles.  Those are both located in /root/profiles.  I put them
there so they can be writable as /root is mounted on a ramdisk along
with a few other directories.

Let me know what you think, please.  That goes for anyone else who tries
this cd out... ;)  I'm sure that there will need to be some adjustments
with the kernels, and perhaps a few other things.

You can find the iso here:

For obvious reasons, I'd prefer that anyone downloading this use the bz2
file if at all possible, but I left the unzipped iso there, too, if you
really need that.
A 350 MB iso and 200 MB zipped - not bad, I'd say!

BTW, if this cd actually becomes useful to a number of people, I
wouldn't mind some help hosting it, if anyone out there has some
bandwidth they'd like to kill :) I don't really have a whole lot to
