Agreed. The decission, which flavor has to be on the first CD, is done
by debian-cd's scripts, see
/usr/share/debian-cd/tools/boot/woody/boot-i386. CD distributors can
change it if they like.
IMHO bf2.4 is stable enough to be used as installation
kernel and is used by most people (Impression, looking at submitter's
data of recent bug/success reports).

But who makes this decission for the CD Nr.1? DPL?

BTW: I personaly think that "compact" on the second CD does not make
sence, its primarily goal is smart floppy-based installation.

               klar werden, wo der Fehler liegt.
