Packrat that I am, I have the 4-CD sets for 3.1, 3.3, 3.4, and 3.5.1 (but
not, of course, 3.2).

The packages on these CD's may be useful to you.  If you want them,
let me know, and I'll set up authenticated FTP access for you
to them - I'm working on getting my 7-CD rack on-line, anyway,
so we could have several of these available to you at once, or
I can arrange to lend them to you, if you promise to return them.
They have a place of honor on my wall-of-fame!
