A combined DVD can be produced with a slight modification of the script 
http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/CDtoDVDMedia (path for 
implantisomd5 has changed) so the script and the two single-layer 
images, along with some directions, would suffice to allow people to 
download the two DVD ISOs and create a dual-layer. (I successfully made 
the ISO with 6.2 - have not tested installing yet.)

I'd advocate just continuing with the minimal install CD and installable

If the script approach is not satisfactory that would be workable.
