Today i started with debian-cd. I dont know if i give pgi a try, it
wants to install too much other things. :)

Yes, its big. If i say all Packages i get 6CDs :)

If i saw it right the new debian-cd makes a isolinux CD. I dont know, i
dont made an .ISO yet. Just the package lists (see below).

Give me a faster server. I only have DSL. :)

But now:

Look at
At the bottom you find something for the Linuxtag. Today only one
.tar.bz2. It contains 2 subdirs and a README. There are the package
lists and what i used to get them.

Please note: Im very new to debian-cd, i mainly do this to learn it. So
if there is anything wrong give me Input. This is only the first
try. We can change it :)
I think we should have the ISO finished til 16 May so the one who makes
the copys has enough time for it.

I dont used a knoppix Package list for now.
