Well, I don't realy want to make this officially, but I don't intend to
have problems with the tax office or so. And I don't want to make money
out of it. Just to help people that have no easy way to get access to
linux. (In Romania, for instance, the internet connection with the
Western contries is at verry low speed and most of the people don't have
a couple of dollars to by the CD's.)

As I said, I don't want to make this at large scale and I am not looking
for profit. I prefer to burn the CD's only when someone ask me for it.
But I don't want to get in troubles if I make this information available
on the web.
