From the rellease anouncement:
CD images (ISOs), bootable on some platforms, will be available as of Sunday,
16 September 2001. Also included are three binary package CD images identical
to those distributed for NetBSD 1.5.1. These will be available at the
download sites listed under the "ISO image mirrors" section.
As far as "official CD's" Wasabi Systems (http://www.wasabisystems.com)
gennereally provides these. I actually have on on order from them also.
However due to the NYC tragedy this has suspended some of Wasabis operations
and do not know how soon they will be able to package and ship the CD's.
