        Attached you will find a c.o.l.a ad-posting for a CD-ROM
        from Cheap Bytes ... Slackware 3.1 (aka 96). It cannot be
        used for a bulk buy as there is a limit of one CD per
        customer. Still, this is a PRETTY GOOD deal - $0.99 per CD
        - and I thought it should be mentioned.
