Thanks, everyone for all the help. I admit, TPB was not my first
choice, given my ISP's nasty habit of shaping torrent traffic, but it
seems to be the easiest solution. I do tend to have a thing for
holding original install media, when I can get my hands on it, but I'm
just happy that I can get the heavy blue brick up and running, with a
minimum of drama, compared to some other projects I've attempted.

Thanks, yet again.
