Free Distro Cd's


I saw on a website about a group that gives away Linux Cd's for free, plus s&h, but I can't seem to find the site again... Anyone know what I'm talking about? If so, what's their site?

I don't know about any that ship CD's, but if you have a burner and a decent connection, you might want to check out http://www.linuxiso.org.

I checked that out... Only have a 56k...not a very fast one at that. I don't really want to buy a distro because I am a newbie at Linux, and I don't want to spend the $$ on something that I might not get use out of.

Do they give away any distro, or do they give away their distro?

It looks like they give away whatever distros they can get a hold of, but they only give a few away a week...gotta get lucky i guess.
