One alternative would be to get someone else to make you diskettes.
The Twin Cities SIGAda makes copies of GNAT available on diskette.
Our price basically covers our cost of copying and distribution.
See our web-page info at
Or, if you do not have WWW access, send a check for $10 made
payable to Twin Cities ACM SIGAda to:

Or, if your friend has a CDROM drive, get an Ada CDROM from Walnut Creek.
