Which era you exactly from? You could try BidorBuy. Wait, did I just say that? That's just too old school man. Do you school or work or something? Download the damn thing. FREE, quick and easy. If you have no means and really desperate, I can, or any MyBB member can do it for you, then only thing you have to do is pay shipping costs.hi, do you know of a site here in sa where i can order/purchase linux distro's online and have it posted to me?
so far ive only found online shops in usa n stuff.
Not that cheap. Not cheap at all. I'd take up Slab's offer if I were you. Someone here might just charge you postage, or even if they are close enough, meet up with you (in a public place, duh!) and give said discs to you.Hi Bro
thanxx a lot for the offer.
my download speed is.....#@%$*#
but after searching on the linux online vendor list's i found a grrrreat site!
care to have a look? www.linuxos.co.za
i ordered this: http://linuxos.co.za/index.php?route=product/product&path=28_71&product_id=124
pretty damn cheap, R20 bux postage n R75 for the actual thing
btw bidorbuy is hopeless !
Yes, ftp://ftp.wa.co.za/pub/ is a FreeZone server, so downloads from there do not count towards your cap. I've used this a couple of times, and checked my usage to confirm that it is free. Great option for capped WebAfrica users!
You can also add mirror.ufs.ac.za to that list.As the title says - linux distros and where to download locally for those of us who wish to save bandwidth - can a mod please sticky this - will add links as people provide them. The reason for this - local bandwidth is cheap - some ftp's are often slow while others are fast - most stock the same distro's with one or two discrepancies here and there - but this at least allows you to see which site is fastest for your download while being able to use local bandwidth - thanks to all who contribute.
Edit: Have pm'd bwana to sticky this - if you find it useful and would not like to see it fade in to obscurity then I suggest you do the same. Happy Hunting.
