Am I? why? (No, I'm not... if there were KDE pkgs, they'd be on the CD, 
but there are none; and there are ~no gnome pkgs on the CD either, only 
what's needed for dependencies)

Hm, I guess it can't hurt a lot to add that.

What I'm totally puzzled about is why there's no firefox on the CD.
It's listed in the READMe, it's also in the temp directory that's made to 
create the CD, but i can't find it in. No idea what's happening there...
(And debugging this isn't so easy when the CD is on the other end of the 
world with a tiny link to me)

On the other hand, qemu-system-x86_64 helps a lot testing this.
