I've already asked my bookshop to order that book. I saw it listed on 
http://www.debian.org/doc/books as "Sarge DVD (i386/amd64)". If you cancel the 
amd64 part I may cancel my order as that was one of the main selling points 
for me.

Can't you please have a DVD with a GRUB menu deciding which ISO to boot. That 
would allow you to have official ISOs for i386 and amd64 on 1 DVD.

I know something like this is possible because I have a rescue CD somewere 
that has a big collection of boot floppies on 1 CD and you choose at boot 
time which one to use.

I hope this helps and I still hope to buy that book.
All the best.
