I wish "all but extra" would fit! No, it's slightly more complicated. The
list of files used in the default systems on the boot floppies are put
onto CD 1, along with all remaining Important/Standard/Required packages.
To this are added a list of packages (called slink1.useful in the slink_cd
package) that I thought should go there. People on debian-cd gave feedback
for this too. The dependencies on disk 1 are checked, to make sure it will
stand alone if necessary...
