Slightly different?  Server is 5 CDs.  Client is 7 CDs (or one 3.9GB  
DVD).  It is slowly starting to get into area where there's no point  
in using CDs anymore.

If they keep this pace, for version 6 you'll need dual layer DVD, Blue  
Ray or HD-DVD to fit it onto single media...

Anyhow, the good news is they bumped kernel to 2.6.18 from 2.6.17.
