Note that I prefer people to use the shorter URL


although I'm doing my best to make sure that the other variation will
work now too.

I should note that I recommend either rsync or, at worst, http, since
ftp sucks so bad.

You only need 4 and 5 if you really want the source rpms.

Ditto for the docs.  Everything there is readily available online.
Also, that iso is only 58MB, which kinda seems like a waste of a CD.

FWIW, we've got a GNU mirror on the new bigger-and-better ftp site,
but we don't have the iso directory.  The Debian mirror seems to have
hurd packages though.
