this isnt really a problem, its something thats by design - we want the
comps to only be on cd-1 since that way people can run a minimum install
only needing cd-1.

depending on the pkgset selected for install, the installer will build a
transaction set, comps goes right down the ladder there, to setup an
install order. IF you really want everything and dont want to do this
switch - how about using the DVD or install over the wire !
