The -1_NONUS (= non US) image has the same packages as the -1 but with a
sligth difference : in the -1_NONUS, there are crypttographic tools,
such as gpg and ssl, but not in the -1. I'm french and I have a set of
these 4 CDs, but I have never put the -1 in my box, always the -1_NONUS.
So you don't need the -1 and should use the -1_NONUS. This is due to
American laws...

No, but you won't be able to use cryptography, gpg and ssl...
