Not to me, it isn't. He could be looking for help in installing Fedora 
for multiple systems for example which is why David Nalley talked about 
Cobbler. How is asking for a clarification disgusting to you? I don't 
understand what's troubling you.

The cost of shipping media is prohibitive compared to the cost of 
replicating it. This is well known and has been discussed in the list 
multiple times which is why I indicated that local people are better 
suited to help.
