which is irrelevant. ifcfg scripts require the specially formatted files  
to exist or be generated via NOW documents. Dynamic environments don't  
hard code things like that.

pretty please can we put this in the minimal distro? *beg*
Having multiple copies of a 4G DVD iSO (I have sites all over the place)  
really burns a lot of disk for no good reason. Or maybe "disk1" should be  
like RHEL of yore? About <600MB and it had everything reasonable to expect  
of a basic system?

While I'm at it, a minimal system shouldn't be lacking the following IMO.

bind-utils
ntp
nc
man (the packages install all the manpages, so why not a way to read them?)
wget
