So does that mean that the "alternate" CD (the install CD from the
cdimage site, right?) has more than the CD that Shipit supplies?

Oh! So it's meant only for fresh installs. I haven't really tried out
the install from the Shipit CD, I have only a laptop and no other
computer, so I dont want to screw around with whats already running on
it (namely, the old alpha Dapper, now beta after upgrades ofcourse,
with a lot of changes to my taste). I guess I will go back to college
and download a copy of the CD I need, and maybe give away the Shipit
one (can't bear to waste those!).
