Testers are downloading wrong builds

Description

Several people on IRC and in Trac have unsuspectingly been downloading and testing the stale old nightlies on haiku-files.org, could we perhaps move those files out of the way?

I think sikosis was reinstalling his build environment on his "factory" machine and didn't get a chance to finish.

In this case, the nightlies aren't terribly important anyway, and we should probably focus people on testing the alpha candidates instead...

Perhaps we should just temporarily remove the "Night HD Images" section of that index.php and replace it once alpha has been released.

I suspect after updating the website, we very likely will want change haiku-files.org to redirect to haiku-os.org/download or whatever, and have the links to the alpha and nightlies located there instead... but that seems to be a bit up in the air still.

I second this. I looked all over the website and had no idea there even was a release candidate until I found a link mentioned in a forum post. I used the out-of-date raw hdd image for several days before I found it. I do believe that page definitely needs to be updated. It even says on the official Downloads page that there are no ISO images available yet, which is in fact NOT true, there is a LiveCD of the RC, but it is very hard to find.

It's actually hard to find on purpose, we don't have an official alpha yet, and if people would wait until September 14th, we promise to provide a very nice download page with easy links :)

Shouldn't be an issue now.
