Ok, they would have been handouts at conference trade shows. The only one
I attend regularly is AUUG (I can't see LCA having handed these out), so
if we go with that assumption, then:
2000 in Canberra
2002 in Melbourne
Checkout http://www.auug.org.au/events/winter.html -- Caldera is
certainly a sponsor of the 2002 event. John Terpstra was present as a
Caldera employee (he's now moved on I believe) at the 2002 conference.
AUUG might be able to provide information of previous sponsorships from
Caldera and help confirm these dates. I have cc'ed the current president.

Hmmmm. I read the wrong URL on the disc. The source is claimed to be at
ftp://ftp.caldera.com/pub/server, which is 404.
I've put a JPEG of the CD at
http://www.stillhq.com/diary/pictures/caldera-cd.jpg is that good enough?
The information from the disc is:
Release 3.1.1 OpenLinux
CD #1 Server
Release notes GPL source
can be found at downloadable from:
