Yes, it arrived here on Monday.  In my opinion the InfoMagic "Linux Developers
Resource" is the CD set to have.  It is very cheap ($25 plus shipping) and very
current (the latest was pressed April 30).  It includes: kernel source through
1.3.88, Red Hat Picasso/ELF 3.0.3, Slackware 3.0 (ELF), and Debian 0.93R6.  It
is the next best thing to your own Internet T3.  The disk's main feature is a
snapshot of and as of the date of manufacture,
and it throws in a live filesystem.

InfoMagic also accepts plaintext and PGP-encrypted orders via e-mail.  Send a
message to "info at" for an auto-reply.
