That's a terrific idea. I hope someone does it.

I've been searching for a copy of this one myself for quite some time. If
anybody has one that they could do without, I'll be happy to give you top
dollar for it.
I've also been searching for a copy of the (now out-of-print) O'Reilly
COFF book. Same offer. If you have one that you don't need anymore,
I'd be more than happy to give it a good home (and give you some cash).

That sounds like the best argument in favor of getting these useful, but
now out-of-print things online somewhere (for free distribution via the net).
