Hi I have a freind who is servering the dark side(ie microsoft) I would like to turn him to the light side(ie linux) :-) however, he does not want to install linux as he thinks it will take to much time. A linux boot cd would be just the thing to get him into linux, however I do not have a cd burner. Is there any one out there who can make me a boot cd? I would like gcc and libs and a window manager, and anything else you can stuff onto it. I know this is a  big project, but I will shower whoever does it with points.
Please hurry as I want it before christmas and I live overseas.
Jesse.

Well how much did you have in mind? I will either give points and money to pay postage etc, or I will pay more points.
