I think I agree. The only thing isolinux has the potential to buy us at
the moment is a large enough boot initrd to support SCSI cdroms without
using a driver floppy, and SCSI cdroms are rare, and we are not even
currently using that potential. We also have space to include 5 or 10 of
the most common SCSI controllers on the current initrd if we really want
to (519k free).

Maybe we could put isolinux on the *second* CD, with eventually an
initrd that supports SCSI cdroms.
