the upstream server product is almost a full DVD in itself. Is it worth 
having the main distro on 2 DVD, and another option which is still a 
complete'ish DVD ?  If we are going to work out a lightweight CD size'd 
install media, is it worth then also having the full DVD'ish option over 
and above the 2 DVD disk full distro ?
