It does look good, and I wasn't aware of it. Thanks for the link. 
Unfortunately, it won't quite do what I want. I doesn't have tetex, 
which is definitely one of my must-have packages.

However, it does look like they got the symlinks to work on the cd, so 
if I can figure how to do that myself, I'm set. I don't see anything in 
their docs that indicates how they constructed the CD image though.
