Just talking to Lance and Johnny online, and we feel the best way
forward might be to add an Media-Updates/ repo on the iso's itself -
then list both the local media updates as well as mirror.centos.org
updates repo's in the anaconda screen, both disabled.
We feel this gives us the max wins in each direction ( but will slightly
increase the data size on the last cd, as packages from cd-1 will move
to cd-2 etc.
I will still try and ensure that a minimum install is possible using
only cd-1, but cant promise that.
