To make it short:

The images are in place. Please make you own announcement as this is your work.ftp://ftp.vslib.cz/pub/mirrors/whitebox.org/people/pasi.pirhonen/AMD64-RC1
The site ftp://ftp.vslib.cz has pretty abusive restrictions as working reverse DNS and correct e-mail address as password (don't use the name joe, the domain must be correct and exist etc). I was talking with local admin to remove these bits so we will see.

Thank Milan Kerslager for making this available short time as i asked this morning (local time). I was able to use faster link at office for upload the 3.2GB 'release'.
Please _bug_ me if there _IS_ something wrong. The address is below. DON'T bug me with questions like 'how i install it?' or similar FAQ-material. If you can't install it, don't even download it. It's release to get more people finding out this i have missed. Once you have done it twice, you have already made 'a path' which you follow and can't break from ..... until someone else points out your stupidity
Once more the original MD5SUMS (athought i have no reason not to believe that those aren right on the above site)
There are some notes on the root of first ISO-image. Basically it is.
- Left out everything that doesn't compile/belong to arch
- Added acpid as it really belongs arch
- grabbed the list of i386-stuff from public beta2 and satisfied dependencies for current version (ie. more i386-stuff).
havemyself done several test-installation under Athlong64 (the MSI-board) with radeon (yes. Radeon - the pure original AIW) and G400/DH. IDE-disks and e100 NIC. This release is not installed to my dual-Opteron, but it's already running this one as it was built on it.
Now this is out, i'll package the IA64 for monday ot earlier if i drive back to work this weekend.
