You're right, I don't see any CD image available online that contains all
the packages, which is a little surprising.

However, CDs containing lots of the packages are available very cheaply.
I just checked http://www.cheapbytes.com , and they have 4 & 6 CD sets
available for as low as US$6. So you might invest in one of those.
