17 Hi Harry,
18 I have an up-to-date Gentoo 64-bit/KDE Virtualbox VM but I haven't
19 tested it on a Windows host. I suppose could try that given some time.
21 I'd have no problem donating a copy if people wanted it and there
22 was some public place that we could put it. I don't want to run a
23 server here to do that though. It looks like it would be around 5GB if
24 I cleaned out /usr/portage/distfiles.
26 - Mark
