If someone's willing to burn one, I'm willing to try (come Jun, or
maybe Mem Day, as my schedule's filled the next couple of weeks). I
have a 28.8 line at home (thanks BA).  No, I don't have the option of
cable or DSL.  BTW: My main Deb interest would be on my alpha machines
at home, although I would also look at it for my dual PPro.
As Paul pointed out, slink is badly out of date, and my line won't
support the upgrade necessary.

I am subscribed to some of the deb lists (alpha, developer in digest
form), and look forward to Potato being GA.
