only for the record: You try to make a CD ? (or a DVD?)

Of you make a CD: from the CD-Writing-HOWTO:

  In times where everybody except me owns a 400 Mhz machine, people feed
  the output of mkisofs directly into cdrecord:

       shell> IMG_SIZE=`mkisofs -R -q -print-size private_collection/  2>&1 \
       | sed -e "s/.* = //"`
       shell> echo $IMG_SIZE
       shell> [ "0$IMG_SIZE" -ne 0 ] && mkisofs -r  private_collection/  \
       |cdrecord  speed=2  dev=0,6,0
                   tsize=${IMG_SIZE}s  -data  -
       #       don't forget the s --^         ^-- read data from STDIN

I don't know pgi, but run this on old hardware? 

IMHO debian don't use pgi and we make/have a new debian installer.
Should we use this new framework for the CD?

If somebody have problems with pgi, nobody can help and I don't know any
german 'pgi-guide' for the CD...
