Ever since I saw the notice that the release was being pushed back I wondered if it would be possible to include it as planed for the next issue of LXF.

I would suggest waiting another month as a means of avoiding errors introduced by a rushed attempt to get it distributed. Moreover, I would expect some of the flaws in the original release might be corrected to give those using this distribution less of a headache. My experience with FC3 has been excellent regarding the initial installation on a laptop and once I discarded the up2date utility for the command line yum I have been satisfied with the updates.

How about including Debian's Sarge as an offering - it has been quite nice so far for me and it's updating / version change utility is unsurpassed by anything I have used previously.

It was delayed for a week, but it is out now.

nice idea, but a full install (the whole x86 install package) contains already 14 cd's Smile (not to mention the 64bit, ppc... versions)
I would consider to offer the netinstaller with an LXF issue... Smile

You don't need all 14 CDs to install Debian. I've just installed a working desktop woth GNOME and KDE from only the first CD.

hehe, I've never installed from normal CD's, always used the netinstaller... for the simple reason my p1 laptop just has enough power and diskspace for a basic install of a few 100 MB Smile
