Hi people,

Just wanted to hint you the live CD is just a little bit too big. (To be burned 
on those nice creditcard type cd's. They can only contain 110mb of data. Is it 
possible <dunno, that's why I ask> to shrink the image to about 110mb and do 
with that, or is the system suffering sooooo much it isn't possible?

It would be nice to have creditcard size rescue environments. Good as promo 
items as well :D

We will have a ~40MB basic LiveCD option for 1.4 release.

Moving these so we can remove the "Install CD" component from "Gentoo Linux".

I apologize to everyone for this spam, but according to the bugzilla developers,
this is the only reasonable way to do this.
