I have a kickstart file that worked to create a DVD image with a lot 
more components.  I'll run through the process again with a bit more 
thought before putting it out in public.  Will also give some thought to 
writing up the benefits.

What I was really wondering is if such a LiveDVD image might be 
distributed by CentOS like the LiveCD, but allowing more functionality 
by removing the restrictions imposed by the size of a CD.
