I just picked a fast mirror, fired up my favorite FTP program, downloaded
the setup.exe and the the setup.ini and everything in the release
subdirectory, burnt it to a DVD. You can also burn in to CD-Rs but then you
have to split it up on 3-4 discs and reconstruct it back home. Speaking from
memory now so I may have omitted some file I downloaded from the ftp site,
but it wasn't hard figuring out what I need iirc.
