No, I don't mind what system it is based on, I didn't know anything else but
Knoppix so far. I did not see the latest LiveCD, my computing powers here are
rather limited - I have to ask the computer group for everything. In fact, I
cannot even burn CD's... (But they will do it for me, of course)

Well, I need the image downloadable on friday. Is it sufficient if I send you
the package with instructions tomorrow evening? (i.e., european time evening, I
have no idea what time zone you live in :-)

Thanks a lot for your help,
