I honestly don't see this as unreasonable for people on really legacy
hardware.  It's akin to what we do for people who insist upon text only
installs.

Something else not terribly unreasonable, instead of split CD media, a
single CD offered that is netinst.iso plus the contents of @core and
@base if it'll fit on a CD.  Then they can do whatever custom install
they want, and add packages after install, either from a DVD media or
from a local mirror, or from the Internet.
