I mailed him and asked : he says it's a single install CD with no manual,
and it's designed to get people started with Linux... hmmm...
He says he has a mailing list set up which people can ask questions on,
and that's the support he's talking about. While this is a reasonable
thing to do, he should make it very clear on the auction that it's not
Redhat support provided, and it's not a full boxed set.
