*RESOLVED* Jeremy Utley's Bootable CD - Sources Packages?

No need to reply anyone, I emailed Jeremy and he replied (quickly, too!). He didn't put the source packages on the CD.

"No, I did not put the source packages on the CD. Because the CD is
network-enabled, I didn't think it was warranted to waste space on the
CD with the source, when you could just as easily download them."

Sucks to be me...I use dial-up and don't have the time before leaving for a semester in England to download the packages and install the system. Oh well.

Hey all, I downloaded and am trying to use Jeremy Utley's bootable CD designed for setting up a LFS system. My question is, where are the sources? You know, the *.tar.gz files?! Chris Lingard's page for his CD specifically says where they are, but Jeremy's doesn't. They've got to be there somewhere, right? I mean, the CD was about a 600mb burn....and wouldn't it be pointless to make a bootable designed for LFS without the needed sources and patches?
