You may wish to use a CD stand to present your discs on stalls or in public places. The stand linked below can be made by you using a sheet of paper and two pieces of sticky tape. It can hold approximately fifteen CDs or DVDs in thin plastic cases. It can be used for any GNU/Linux distribution, and provides space to list your team's contact details.
Instructions: for best results use photo paper. Print on both sides ('front' on shiny side and 'back' on the reverse). Cut along the indicated lines and fold along the solid grey lines. Stick together the side flaps to complete construction.
Gnu/Linux on USB
You may find it easier to use USB flash memory sticks instead of burning GNU/Linux to CD or DVD. Unetbootin is an easy to use application which turns a GNU/Linux CD or DVD image into a bootable USB drive. Unetbootin is available for multiple platforms.
Free Software may be redistributed by anybody. All software listed on this page should be Free. You may want to check individual licenses from the respective websites before you distribute them however.
