I think systems won't have DVD burners by the time the single-CD FC ISO
goal is achieved. Because by the time it's achieved, DVD will be old
news. (should have been more clear in my message)

So my goals would be to :
1. make a kick-ass network boot iso
2. reduce package interdependencies and make network install smarter so
this iso can pull *small* sets of packages from the *large* FC pool.

In the last releases anaconda accrued a deplorable tendency to install
everything available all in the name of simplifying
installation/anaconda coding and reducing the number of possible RHEL
support scenarii. Unfortunately that means network installation bloat
has grown much faster than the FC ISO enveloppe. Focusing on the ISO
number is very wrong - will a two-CD FC that forces you to install
pretty much everything be so much better for small systems than a 4-CD
base from which you can build a 1 CD system ?
