If you reread my posts you will see that I have built an entire Linux 
system using the Linux from Scratch process using my SUSE system as a base 
for compiling all of the binaries.  My complaint is the inability to get 
the necessary "pieces" in one coherent package or place. My last attempt 
fizzled after two weeks of trying to find a working mirror for the bleeding 
edge version some obscure library.  I can't remember what it was.

With the ubiquity of the basic pentium processor I see no reason why a 
downloadable bootable cdrom distro image of Xastir can not be created.  I 
have used the Demolinux distro on all sorts of machines with good results.
