Yes, this is planned but technically difficult so loading multiple CDs
will not be possibly in time for Etch.

If we install synaptic with the default install (it is currently in CD 2) adding cdroms would be a bit more friendly (Starting synaptic and Edit->Add CDROM won't scare newbies as much as opening a terminal 'su root' and run apt-cdrom add).

Would it be possible before etch?
