The premise of your question is, unfortunately, false. Duplicating the
boxed set's disks is copyright violation. Which should be no surprise,
given that their contents include Star Office 5.2, VMware, Opera 6.0,
Moneydance, Kylix Open Edition, and IBM Java2.
How 'bout buying your old man a boxed set?
