hello all,
i would also be interested in an offline (cd-rom based) solution as i
have a few standalone boxes with no internet connection which i want
to populate with some good linux audio software  :)))

i remember there are also a few linux "distro's" out there that sort
of build a custom linux distribution for you, if i'm not mistaking
RockLinux is one of them. could that sort of mechanism be of any help

greets, ALEX
