Last time I checked they still had ISOs for the latest versions, when
did this change?

Getting it up and running means to start a new distribution or find
another way to install what already exists. RULE does the second,
hence you need other CDs to work on.

Bandwidth wise it's the same, isn't it? You need to download/find a
lot of bytes anyway. RULE mission is to stay current, so we have today
Red Hat 9 installer, but want to go to Fedora Core 2.

To help people without bandwidth to get CDs, we suggest the RULE


PLease consider to join, or ask some LUG/whoever in your area with
broadband to do it

Excuse me for being greedy, but I want freedom and good government.
Both a flourishing economy and a well-cared-for earth. A society that
is diverse and communal.. that offers both privacy and accountability.
One that can afford a big conscience, along with lots of neat toys.
