Which ISO .. virt-what is on the Everything ISO and in the os/
directory.. you can use that.

Our DVD package list gets remastered to stay less than 4.3 GB, and we
want 'repo closure' and < 4.3 GB, and anything that can be selected from
the 'GUI Installer' for a normal install.

If you need things that fall outside those conditions, then an
Everything ISO on something bigger than 4.3 GB DVD(a thumbdrive, etc.)
is the way to go. There is only so much space on a DVD.
