yeah, this sounds good. if anybody here has anything thats missing from
ftp.digital.com these days, please contact me to get it into this
archive. Given its size, i hope to have it online within a week or 2,
once i can get some disks for the machine that will be serving it.
gatekeeper is much slower.. some of the stuff on there maybe i will omit,
like the freebsd mirror, for example. that stuff is elsewhere.
