That's fair enough, maybe I'll step in and volunteer to do it some
day, but probably not until I've got a real ppc!

In the meantime, perhaps the page should be adjusted to reflect the
situation? Perhaps wording something like this would work?

"These images aim to be small enough to fit on a "Business Card" CD.
The i386 image is around 30MB, though the size of the images for some
of the less used archtectures are not so vigorously controlled."
