as i said in my post i don't have a problem including the base tarball
floppy images on the CD, what i have a problem with, and what nobody,
including you, has provided ANY rational for is providing the base
***TARBALL*** on the CDs.  

if your box can't read a CD it can't read a basedebs.tgz on the CD now
can it?
