Thanx Colin. I think this will really help and let some of us on the
team focus more on fixing bugs than creating the disks.

I do think there might be 2 issues though.

* We offer the -rt kernel on our disk. Now while this in and of itself
isn't a big deal the fact that its currently in Universe pushes its
restricted modules into Multiverse. :(

* Our installer is also only a Alt. installer where we use tasksel to
give users options as to what to install. See image:

might not be too big a deal as its how the server disks are setup. I'm
just mentioning it.

We kinda reserved ourselves to having to build the disks again because
of the kernel situation but if there will be no issue that would be great.

So if it comes down to us building the disks then hosting help would be
great as our release was insanely popular and took down a couple of
servers. :)
