I'd say lets include them, as it will enable users with this hardware to 
install over the network, which is what the CDs are about. The then missing 
packages just mean more packages to fetch over the network, but it shouldnt 
matter whether you have to fetch 200mb or 214mb.

lsb-core, memtester, nagios-common removed?

not sure if removing ntp-simple is so good.

lsb-core, memtester, nagios-common removed look most strange to me, ah, 
nagios2-common is what we use. So only lsb-core and memtester.. or?

The problem with removed packages on the DVD is, that no packages are 
installed from the network, when doing a install from it...
