Sorry, it might be useful to include a link to the ISO stuff, for quick 


the 'lastest' folder has the ISO files expanded and is our staging area 
for the next image.  You can see the structure of the files in there.  
You will need to use the ftp:// protocol to browse the files, however, 
because there is a tract there as index.html
