no, I ment: this only affects 5% of our userbase^wpopcon installations. 
Assuming amd64 users also have i386, it's maybe 3% (users).

Yes, I want to think of the "Skolelinux install DVD" as the "Debian i386 
DVD" ;-) That's my long term goal.

I also envision 100 other installation media.

As I see it we waste a lot of energy to gain a bit space (on a dual-arch 
medium), while we could easily solve this differently.

And as agreed on IRC, I'll set up single arch DVDs (and keep the multi arch 
DVD), and we'll see from there.
