Then maybe make them call a script that basically does `dpkg
--set-selections < my_selections' and `dpkg --install' or something. You
can get the list for --set-selections by installing the packages on a
`master' system and then call `dpkg --get-selections > my_selections'

This way you can use the stock Debian CD´s. If you find a nice package
later, just tell them to `dpkg --install xxx'. Using the original CD´s
also has the advantage that others (who would be unfamiliar with your
hand-made CD) can help.
