Having etchnahalf combined netinst for i386/amd64 as a CD would be good
thing already - Not sure whether producing a DVD is planned as well, but
if so, that'd be nice to hand out.

There will be a couple of events until Lenny is (likely) to get released
so that producing a new batch looks sensible - Linuxtag, DebianDay,
Systems, maybe even CCC.
