Thanks Andrew, my question was how to trim the base installation. I
think I have a track on how to do this with debootstrap. I only
wonder if there is a way to do that with the businesscard cd.
I'll forward my post to debian-boot, but I don't expect much as that
list is mainly for announcements but I have nothing to lose.
