This script is nice however if we do not want to download all those distributions do we just comment out the distribution versions? I did that but it came out with an error 55: function: not found
Not Downloading (file exists) : 63: Syntax error: "}" unexpected

There is a problem with the script. All .cfg inside debian/lenny/i386/boot-screens/ shows "ubuntu/lenny/i386/"
