I have the gut feeling that that distinction _is_ important.
And as with all gut feelings, it is hard to explain.

On the Debian Wiki I just make this change:

| Diff for "DebianInstaller/EtchBeta3Prep"
| Differences between revisions 45 and 46
| Deletions are marked like this. 		Additions are marked like this.
| Line 17: 					Line 17:
|  * Support installation without network. 	 * Support ''CD-ROM only'' installation.

The same change as unified diff
