If the original CDs do not contain a .discinfo file, would it still be
necessary to create one?  If the absense of .discinfo chokes some
installer, then the same installer would not work with the original
CDs either.  In particular, if the script is meant for CentOS5, the
.discinfo file exists on CD, so there should not be a problem...
