First: Do you realise that there are old computers still in use that 
can't read more than 650MB cd media in case some sudden upgrade needed?
Second: Why there is no rescue environment available on 1st cd? It is 
really lame to pop in second "livecd" (why such a name is beyound me- 
there is nothing live there...).
 I'd suggest to remove ports tree from first cd (we are using csup and 
portsnap anyway?) and move it to second- leaving more important features 
to first one.
