Hi Ed- if you use the debian-cd scripts to build CDs, you basically just
give it a list of packages at one stage during the process and specify a
size limit for the ISO.

The woody-mini-i386-1.raw file I make with a cut-down packages list is
161Mb. I'm not sure what you'd do to get it down to 50. Go axe-happy on the
package list though I guess :}
