Ok, I see, didn't realize that it is so hard to do. Speaking about DesktopBSD, 
well, I'm working on this distro myself as a translator, and ofcourse I've 
used it. Well... lets just say I prefere pure FreeBSD and that's it. The 
problem of buying or making DVDs myself is the time, distros usually become 
out-of-date before the order arrives, as well as those distributives, sold in 
my city, it is 5.4 for now. Isn't that stupid? I now have 6.1 release from 
some internet shop, and there is nothing it can be usefull for me in. If I 
only could now download 7.0-RC2 DVD and Install it on some server right now, 
that would be a pleasure, but I will have to work as a CD-changer instead. 
Well, nothing I can do.

Did not get this, do I do anything wrong?
