Network install is fine for those that have big network pipes. Some of
us live at the end of a crappy 28K dialup because we have 25Kms of
copper from the exchange and the encumbant Aussie telco won't do
anything about it :-)
Well, in your case wouldn't you prefer having more CDs not less ? This
way once you have them you won't have to do lots of networking just to
complete a barebones initial installation.
I do think the "we need to shrunk the distro so it fits in a small cd
set" is a false problem. Network installs don't care, people without
good networking would rather have a complete CD set.
