you have yet to state a single valid reason for placing the tarball on
the CDs.  keep in mind that adding the tarball to CD one means
removing 24MB worth of real .debs, making CD1 less useful.

floppy images are enough, there is no need for the tarball, if you
decide you need one, download it, or use debootstrap to make on using
CD1's package pool.
