One problem about keeping two copies of distro discs is that I burn and
throw away rather too many of them already.  The need to re-download and
re-burn is infrequent enough that I doubt it merits the extra time,
materials, and storage.  It's just annoying, because it's so avoidable
if people simply don't behave like gits.  ;->

I don't yet have the machine with suitably capacious hard drive, but
am heading that way:  Upthread, you'll have noted the installfest server
