[arch-events] Arch Linux CDs for FrOSCon

I just got confirmation for my order of 100 Arch CDs from a local 
company (http://www.icoco.de). This will cost the Arch donation pot 260€ 
which I already received from Aaron.

The CDs should be ready tomorrow or at the beginning of next week and 
will be given away for free at FrOSCon. They are created by copying the 
squashfs images, initramfs images, kernels and bootloaders from the 
official 2009.08 core ISOs to create one ISO for both architectures.

I had to remove the legacy-ide initramfs images so everything would fit 
on one disc (had about 5MB too much for a non-overburned image). 
Providing virtually nobody will need legacy-ide drivers nowadays, it 
doesn't matter (with 2.6.30, all ide devices should be supported by libata).

I will send photos as soon as I get the CDs.
