We had some of that. I had the pleasure of knowing, however, that if
you installed all the X11 and WMAKER stuff on 295 that it would
eventually cause the system to crash, not a huge accomplish mid you but
still.

When I was stuck in the Pharmacy beihind a Wintel box, that disk
actually came in handy. But FWIW, Evan used to punch out a bunch of
SuSE live disk, and Knopix and whatever his little CD Burn could churn
out cladestically at work, and we gave out a bunch of those disks and
made some members.
