Well, IMHO if a user needs more than CD #1 then they're doing
something more sophisticated that what Red Hat would include anyway.
In reality, I'll keel over and die if I meet anyone who *needs* more
than CDs 1 and 2 of woody; if they need anything else, it's one or two
"weird" packages that they're better off spending 10 minutes
downloading (on *dialup*) than spending $$ to buy all 6+ CDs.

Frankly we already have too many people who think that "I need all
6/7/8 CDs"; it's becoming a nightmare for distributors and mirrors
alike, especially since virtually nobody needs what's on 3+ anyway.
