Dear All,

Argh. Gnash. Grrr.

After watching an approx 650mb iso image download here (not at home). 
(for pity's sake) just died.

Could anyone sort me out with some Yellow Dog/SuSE/Debian PPC CDs? 
reimburse obviously, but this would be really helpful.

I have to say this:  IE.  Honestly, why am I surprised, you couldn't
make this up 
could you? It was about 10-5mb short before it died.

It sounds like Linux-advocacy, which IE inadvertently is I guess.
