David, I seem to have created some misunderstanding with my first mail,
so I'll try again. Sorry.

> = How to create install DVD  from CD =

"an install DVD" and probably "install CDs".

This here seems to have been the first misunderstanding: What I wanted
to say was, that I would like it very much, if the script is attached to
the wiki page itself so that you don't have to pull it down from an
external entity -> selfhosting Wiki. You can do this with
"attachment:mkdvdiso.sh" - the scriptname then shows up as a link to the
script with a small paper-clip icon next to it.

"The script uses"

"need to download". "change URL to the closest download mirror".

What I meant here: Why not directly put "mirrors.centos.org" there? That
already *is* a distributed environment, so the user doesn't have to rely
on *one* external entity. But I'm not anal about that.
