Well I just got this reply from LinuxCD.org. Thanks Chris for bringing 
them to my attention. Without wanting to step on anyone's toes. This 
seems to solve the current problems. Cheap at only 90c more, it could 
replace the current solution.

The benefits:
Online payment (PayPal, 2CheckOut) that take cards
Efficient distribution
Eliminates a nasty job for Troy? or someone else
	which means they can concentrate on better things like coding :)

Anyway it can't do any harm. Somebody in charge/the-know let me know if 
and what I should email them.

regards --Will
