Better way is probably making adding new programs(or what you want) to CD more
simple than it is now :)

We can make more robust and more usable for other purposes(Rescuing system
etc.),not only for install.

for booting I thing better is CD like disk because we can create more robust
install CD's with more tools.One example when I last time try to install 3.0 on
LFS root I can't because new_lfs is not on CD :(
