Rename (or copy if you want to keep the old ones) all the existing iso's 
so they have the same filenames as the new ones and then run one of the 
rsync commands below.

Do this from discs 1-6

mv K12LTSP-5.0.0-BETA1-32bit-disc1.iso 
(should be on one line)

Choose which version of rsync

For 32bit
  rsync -Pav k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us::testing/5.0.0-32bit/iso/ .

Opteron/EM64T/etc 64bit version:
   rsync -Pav k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us::testing/5.0.0-64bit/iso/ .

Here is a more thorough and more generic explanation from the wiki..


Many bytes have changed between beta 1 and 6, but it will still same you 
some bandwidth and time.

Hope this helps,
