Fw: How 'bout a linux-delhi CD ??

Well even I've access to a CD Writer, please let me know if cud be of any

But, dear on a personal note I wud like to add something. Won't having a
Linux Software CD Library at a common place (somewhere in central delhi, or
if possible one in each part of delhi) be a much better idea. You cud have
the store in one of the shops. The place will be a boon to newbies from
wehre they can borrow or if desired buy Linux burnt CDs at a very reasonable
cost. We can CDs containing everything, Different distros. to begin with,
various browsers, chat clients, etc. etc.

Think about it....

Have a nice day :-)
