I would like to request that you include some vi-style editor on the install CD.
There's enough stuff there already to show that space is not that big a concern,
and I believe there's a large enough number of users that prefers vi (and is so
used to it that it takes them a long time to edit a file in another editor, I
might add). Anyway, that's my only gripe with the installation system.

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.
