  BODY { font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px; }hey
 i am trying to set up a private network for using freebsd (private
as in off-line)
 i have a windows machine with on-line connection
 i would like to get a hold of the 8.1 CURRENT 'distfiles' (complete
- at least with latest versions only of each port/file)
 however,  when making calculations for downloading the complete
distfiles  directory via anonymous ftp it works out to be a 50 day
operation (a few  hours each day)
 of course there are many earlier version files that may not be
required - in some cases in multiples of tens - which adds up 
 is there a source that makes dvd images of the distfile directory
that i can get a hold of
 if so , please give details - happy to pay a few bucks
