Sadly (from some viewpoints, anyway; I don't mean to
comment on anyone's business practices, it's just that
we've gotten *used* to this stuff being splattered all
over the net), several of the distros are taking the 
position that Itanium 2 distributions will fit into
high-end server products only, and will not be made 
available for free download, at least not as ready-to-burn
ISOs.  I think that's why you got the "can't-find-on-website"
response for Red Hat AS/AW, for example.

So I'd vote for this approach:

  if you want to be listed, send a note to the maintainer
  with a pointer to the best available "how to obtain" page 
  for that product.
