I dont think the resulting install, even after including everything that 
Ned + Hugo + dag have mentioned would result in something remotely 
callable 'Server CD'.

does this mean that while ServerCD has traction, the real problem being 
solved is something else ?

A minimal install can be done with about 160 rpms, getting a CD to do 
just that is not that hard. Is that whats really needed in this case ? 
Would people expect it to support all the regular install mechanism's 
too ? ( cd, usb, pxe, xen, etc ??)
