Just out of curiosity, what is the total size of server + workstation?  
(I only have access to RHEL 6 Server DVD, so I don't know how much 
Workstation adds to it).  I'm guessing most CentOS 6 users would use the 
Server variant over the Workstation variant, so would it be possible to 
mostly combine them, but move some of the really heavy stuff (i.e. 
OpenOffice, eclipse, etc.) to the 2nd DVD?
