     Speaking of the liveimage, is there any reason that it doesn't
contain the install sets?  I put the liveimage onto a thumb drive.
It's handy for when I'm at a location that only has Windows and I need
something with better tools.  But, there are times I may also want to
do an installation and I shouldn't need to carry two thumb drives.  I
did place the install sets on my thumb drive, but it would be nice to
have them there out of the box.
