i forgot to mention that in agreement with otavio, this image will *not*
contain live-installer. this is because we are not confident that it was
tested enough. therefore, i will build the same dvd image twice, once as
an official 5.0r0 build as described above, and once as an unofficial
one including live-installer.

then, we call for testers of the unofficial image well, and if it looks
good, the official dvd image for 5.0r1 will contain live-installer.

there'll be a couple of more such things i'd like to get ready for r1
(multi-arch, powerpc and sparc images), but more about that after lenny
has been done.
