    My friends (some of them at  least) on Team Amiga Mailing List were 
starting to use
Linux and one sent me copies of the ISO files so that I could use a 
Windows laptop since
deceased to make Linux installation disks.
    I had been an Amiga User and the company Commodore Business Machines 
was ruined
by the owner so there would be no more new Amiga computers and mine had 
started to
wear out.
