Do you think it would be possible that we could provide CD image
labels for vendors, if they wanted to use them, which actually had the
names I suggested listed on the CD itself?


   Debian 3.0, Intel x86
   CD number 2 of 5
   SCSI boot CD

I agree that users don't usually read and generally just pop in CD#1
and try to boot it.
