The standard way to distribute large files is Bittorrent, and I
believe Magnus knows the most about this :)

However, wouldn't there be some fairly short script which would let
someone construct their own LiveCD?

While on the subject of LiveCDs--CDs and DVDs in general, come to
think of it--I've noticed that the vast majority of people at trade
shows stuff such things into their goodie bag and then throw them out
unopened.

Am I the only one who sees this behavior?

Cheers,
David.
