you're in luck, for some years the North Carolina dataset has
been collected and made available by and for OSGeo projects
exactly for this purpose. I believe the main contact/coordination
for that is Helena and Markus via the geodata at lists.osgeo mailing
list. GRASS already uses the grass-ified version in its tutorials
and ships+uses that on the OSGeo Live DVD, see

* List of map layers:

* Vector maps in SHAPE format (56MB)

* Raster maps in GeoTIFF format (48MB)

* Raster maps in ArcGrid format (47MB)

* Sample vector maps in KML format (2MB)

... and more ...

* Original data sources in their native format:

We're running out of things to chuck overboard & space is tight,
but I'm confident we can find 106mb on the live dvd for that.
