I call BS on this.  Even a default install, one including Office stuff
from that first selection page never asks for anything beyond 2 cds.
And if I remember correctly, the asking for CD 2 was a bug we failed to
fix, it doesn't actually grab any packages from said CD.  If you
deselected everything, theres no way it should have asked you for more
CDs, you've ended up selecting something.
