I can test them and let you know if they worked or not.

I have a good place for them as well should you want me to. No problem 
what so ever for it. No bittorrent however, but I sure can make the file 
available for download.

If you just need to distribute them. If you have the file available 
anywhere, I can grab via ftp, or right on a web page, then find it a 
place and make it available. No problem should you decide to go that path.
