	"Please don't ask me to Buy It Now"

	"Buy It Now price: 	C $75.99"

"To use this screw you may need to up grade your system to 6.5.29 ;-)
that is why I am giving you the set."

"So with the purchase of the very special SGI SCREW, you will receive
free the CDs listed below."

Note that he is selling a SCREW, not a set of CD's. The CD's come free
with the screw. You can read whatever you want into that.
