Thanks Al, you confirmed what I was thinking. Even though I've only
heard good things about Gutsy I'd still feel more comfortable using
the current version.

I think I'll end up burning a few disks and also taking my laptop
along with the iso files -- that way if anyone wants a copy I can
quickly burn one off.

And thanks too for the idea about the photos!
