the usual network-install iso will get built anyway. We could then do a 
'something like a server disk', but we would need to get our heads in 
and come up with a name. we cant call it 'server' since there is an 
upstream product by that name. Also, we would need some sort of a 
process to decide on pkg list.

Wolfy setup a quiz interface the other day, maybe if people want to get 
in their ideas of 'name of this cd iso' we can get a poll going to a 
wider audience. </just thinking out loud at this stage>

the problem with that would be : yum would see pkgs from the 
optional-updates, by default. While people might have the optional repo 
disabled.
