Thank you for the links however, this isn't what I asked. Allow me to re 

1. I would like a link to either where there may be a full blown DVD image 
of 6.0 or a torrent.

2. If not the above, the layout used to create the DVD image.

Now allow me to explain 1 and 2 so there isn't anymore wild answers to 
questions users seem to think they read.

Reason 1:
If installing more then just the base OS (allow me to say that one key 
word, INSTALL) then swapping out the CD's is not something I'm willing to 
spend 3 hours doing (perhaps that was an embellishment after the fact).

Reason 2:
If there isn't a DVD image to download (either in whole or torrent) then 
the layout would allow me to create my own INSTALL DVD with my curent 6.0 

There - now that I have taken the time to eplain this, I hope there isn't 
anymore confusion as to what I'm asking.

Best regards,

Sanity and insanity overlap a fine gray line.
