Hi James.

Thanks for those suggestions. I'm (purposefully) making it a bit hard on 
myself by doing the install with a completely empty machine and just the 
LiveCD, so not sure the firefox plugin is quote so straightfoward, 
although I am impressed with quite how much X functionality I get from 
the LiveCD.

The Python script is a great idea ;) As I mentioned, I ended up using 
page-info and copying the links from the 'links' tab, and just pasting 
them into a new text file to use with wget.

Michael.
