Would there be a way for a script to combine the two isos into one
with loopback mounts, a copy and rebuild?   I'd probably use a
complete, single iso as file mapped to the DVD in VM's for booting
even if I couldn't burn it.   But if you have to make extra effort,
I'd really rather have a minimal installer that fits a CD and lists of
the package groups that each type of install would include so I could
let yum do it after the base install.
