Having had a look at the dvd, the size could be reduced by about 200meg 
by deleting everything in the /images directory except for stage2.img 
and re-rolling the iso. Then the boot.iso should be made available by 
its self, should someone who can't boot from usb need to use it.
But, if the size of the dvd.iso is reduced as above, then it should fit 
on a single standard cdr. Looking for feedback first before I proceed.
