Right. Looking through the i386 update CD for empty dirs, I find the

  Several are not built for i386, so didn't go on the CD:

    * arcboot
    * atari-bootstrap
    * kernel-image-2.2.22-alpha
    * kernel-image-2.4.17-s390
    * nvram
    * setsccserial

  Several were already on the r0 CDs for i386, so no update
  needed. The updates seem to be just other architectures catching up:

    * afterstep
    * colrconv
    * dwww
    * elk
    * ftape-tools
    * gcc
    * htmldoc
    * illuminator
    * libdbd-mysql-perl
    * nessus-core
    * nessus-libraries
    * postfix-tls

  kdenetwork doesn't seem to have been updated on i386 beyond
  2.2.2-14, while the other arches are on 2.2.2-14.6. Checking the
  changelog, I'm not sure if this is correct or not. There were no
  i386 packages to go on the CD, so none did.

Apart from (maybe) the kdenetwork issue I've noted (and that's nothing
to do with the update CDs themselves), all the above is just
fine. What may have confused you is that the script that generates the
CDs is a little bit dumb - it generates the entire directory layout on
every CD, regardless of whether that particular CD needs that
directory to hold a file.

Don't panic!
