    Nobody else?

    Come on.

    One question though, for some reason I am missing the catalog file (STIHL-SCS-01-2006-USA.CIF) on my copy??
    Still have the original from firebox at home and have to check this one (sorry White Lightning, didn't get to the post office yet, but will tomorrow).
    Anyhow, anybody could think of a reason why the catalog file is missing?
    Thanks.

    Just a WAG here, but if someone did a "drag and drop" as opposed to a "disk copy" you may have ended up with a file or two missing.

    Has anyone considered posting it on a file sharing service to save on postage?

    http://www.filehosting.org/


    Of course, if you don't want to have a public link, just send the link by pm. :cheers:

    You'll be my number 2. :)

    I have considered it; don't exactly know how big it is, as I am missing (at least) the catalog file. Once I verify that my disk is complete (or obtain a complete disk) I'll try to burn a disk image that I could than send through MediaFire.

    Sorry about that. I've made 4 or 5 copies that same way, and they all came out fine AFAIK. I zipped my disc image folder and it's uploading to filehosting.org right now, only came to 75MB or so. I'll PM the link when it's done uploading.

    The uploaded files are identical to the original copy I received and to the copy I made:
    1490 Files in 5 folders
    105 475 478 bytes

    Could somebody else please check their disk for comparison?
    (Highlight all the disk content, right click, properties or do a search for a *.cif file).

    Hate to have this stop here.
    Thanks.

    I assumed that any link existed would be dogged by Stihl's Lawyers, but
    if you can make it work, GREAT!!!!!

    I uploaded to mediafire.com, it worked faster than the one 'mule posted.

    Unfortunately the CD image I had saved seems to be missing stuff. If anyone could upload a good copy of the CD (either zip the CD folder, or make an ISO of the disc) that would be awesome.

    Does it end here?
    If so, sorry Fish; it was a great idea.

    I don't know, does this work? If so, great, until Stihl gets their lawyers
    fired up.

    What is the link? Or where?

    There currently is no working/complete link.
    I would establish one if I had all the files; also I would suggest to keep this file moving from person to person (server to server) and just continue the chain letter idea electronically.

    Not to my knowledge; just set it back to 1-07 before installing.
    At least your copy contains the catalog (mine didn't).
    If you could send it to me, we can getthe whole thing going again.
