Maybe the .iso images dont need to be updated for point releases then ??

Just the ftp server and then tell people to 'update against resources on 
the network as soon as the machine hits the internet' .

Try telling customers that ... the day that 2.2r5 is released they want it

that is a lot of table mats ...

I guess an extra update cd is the way to go ...
