I hope everyone understands that the Medline references on Entrez are
a *VERY* small subset of Medline; specifically references that have
something to do with DNA or proteins sequences.

One (1) year of the complete Medline will fill a CD all by itself.

I know of no free or even inexpensive way of getting Medline on
(multiple) CDs.  There are commercial sources (which I haven't kept
the references for) but they are quite expensive (4 figures).
