Therefore, for a Mageia Community to supply an ISO to a member who has 
dial-up services but is seeking help from the community for an ISO 
download. Options would be:

* provide user with ISO from Mageia without any updates

* provide a user with ISO from Mageia with incremental updates

* provide a user with ISO from Mageia with all updates

Obviously, the two last options are not available from Mageia as this is 
what this thread was all about. Unless there were built ISO's at the 
Mageia download site. The main concerns really are the amount of disk 
space on Mageia servers and mirrors. But these last two ISO's could be 
built somehow if the server space could be accommodated and also if 
there was dev interest in doing these ISOs.
