I have a vanilla 1.8.0 LambdaCore, modified only following Brack's
instructions, ready to download in gzip or unix compress format. I can't
offer FTP though, we only have anon-ftp for our internet software (and that
only works for XS4all ;-)

However, i think Matt Duhan was talking about an old, used (filled ?) DB,
not a vanilla Core. I think my father has an old Slackware distribution that
came with LambdaMOO 1.7.8... Might be 1.7.6 though, i haven't looked at it
for a while. I am not sure if the database needs modifying before 1.7.9, it
certainly does need modifying before 1.8.0 -- thats what the page
is about. I would suggest you try to load up the DB in a 1.7.9 MOO, and if
it doesn't work, try 1.7.8. I could send you the .tar.gz for that one ;-)
