I will do that when I get back but on holiday I'll only have
my (very early) eeePC netbook with a USB stick so I want to
save space. I've deleted the Documentation and arch folders
(except the x86 subfolder).
Hopefully that will cover everything in the book.
Once I get back I may well start poking about in the code myself, at
which point I'll put the full download on my desktop box.
