Perhaps my message was not clear. I am not the author of the book or the
CD's. I just happened to pick the book up at a bookstore. I thought it might
be of interest to those who may not be able to download the GRASS binaries
over the Internet or who might just like the convenience of getting both
Linux and GRASS in a CD format.

As far as I can tell, the binaries are the same as those available on the
moon. As noted by Dave Mandel, the GRASS source code is, unfortunately, not
included on the CD.
