Lately I need the livefs CD a lot. Unfortunately you cannot install
FreeBSD by hand anymore, using the livefs disc, because there are no
installsets on that disk. I don't have a lot of machines with 2 CD-ROM
drives, which means I often have to copy the install sets from other

It would be great if I had a FreeBSD disk (a DVD) which has the livefs,
but also the base and kernel install sets.
