Yet another denial - it's as though it's also blocking me based on the
relationship of included text vs. new text.

blah, blah, blah. Let's see if this is enough new text to get through.

Thank you, Todd, that was the answer. So, in RHEL 6, they're protecting us
against ourselves (we might not have copied everything). So with the FAT32
partition as it was, I then deleted everything on the second partition,
and copied both DVDs onto it... and it's installing even as we speak.

I suppose I need to submit a revised "how to build a USB key" for CentOS 6.
