3rd party Mandrake DVDs?

Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to get Mandrake 10.0 DVDs -- with the contribs & commercial software like Acrobat reader -- from eBay or somewhere other than the Mandrake store. You can already get 3rd party CDs with this software, so that leads me to believe it's not a copyright violation. But it would be much more convenient to have everything on one disc. Is this something that I just need to get the Powerpack for? If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it.

You could download the rpms for the install, contribs and updates from an ftp site and produce your own dvd.

Here is a link on how to produce a dvd from the 3 iso files:

Yeah, if I can't find a DVD I'll download everything a la carte. I've just gotten used to having a collection of software that I can load up from CD.
