They are silver both sides, look quite good, actually! I usually stamp a 
penguin on one side so that people put them in the drive the right way 
round (they are not double-sided, just look that way).

Of course. But you still should update to 8.04.1, which actually takes 
longer than the installation itself.

These particular ones also have the internet disabled (they are 
child-safe!). You  have to do:

sudo dpkg --purge resolvconf
sudo touch /etc/resolv.conf
sudo dhclient eth0

But as Matthias now has 200 we don't need these for Saturday. If anybody 
can think of a brilliant use (after the party) for the unlabeled ones or 
has a printer which can print on the disks, (or would like to pay for 
professional labelling) please get in touch with me.

I hope you have a fine event! Thanks for your efforts and get well!

Cheers, Theo (still running 6.06!)
