Hi there.

This is to announce the general availability of the above CD's, as

        Linux Kernel Archives Volumes 1 & 2

This is a two CD set containing all known Linux kernel release
tarballs from v0.01 through v2.1.83 that can still be found (or at
least, those that I have managed to find so far).

Note that a full list of kernel tarballs known to have been released
can be viewed at the following URL, which also contains payment

Be warned in advance that the above document is around 150k in size,
and it does NOT contain any graphics images - its length is simply due
to the number of kernel tarballs and patch files that have been
released in the last eight years...

Please also note that volume 3 is NOT currently available, simply
because I don't currently have enough hard disk space to put it
together ready for burning, but I expect to remedy that situation in

Best wishes from Riley.
