I don't consider CD1 useful for the reasons I mentioned in
<[🔎] 20120516214232.GC20502@spike.0x539.de>.  It does make a time difference if you
need to burn 700M instead of 70M as those additional bytes are wasted anyway.

Is it possible to put the CD image somewhere FTPish verbatim and select it for
installation?  That would still mean that one would not use the CD directly
unless it's not put into something s390'ish but a developer workstation.

Kind regards
