I know lots of people that have 28/56k internet connections that I
want to give Fedora to, but it's a lot of effort for them to wait for
hundreds of MB of updates. Would it be possible to provide
updates-released CDs as well, even as part of an automated process? A
bonus would be to have a way to install these updates on an already
installed system.
