I just checked debian-testing-amd64-i386-powerpc-netinst.iso vs
firmware-testing-amd64-i386-powerpc-netinst.iso from
and they have all the same files on them modulo the additional firmware
-- did you already fix the problem? or has time been the best cure?

The firmware image is only 5M larger than the non-firmware one so if
firmware one breaks the regular one must be pretty close to the
precipice too.

Google shopping finds them if you explicitly ask for 74mins but if you
are just looking for CD-R then it's 80mins across the board.

The firmware image is currently 648M so it's pretty close to the limit.
