Its enough to have rescue, root and drivers on the cd and install
everything else via net. But since theres more space on the CD (even
business card shaped once), add base and stuff needed for isdn to it
and you have the perfect install CD.

Alternatively wait for my Debian Demo FS, which will boot up X and
lets you configure your network, irc, browse the net, play moonbuggy
or install Debian in an xterm. I'm just waiting for 2.4.0 to make an
initial release.

May the Source be with you.
