Ondisk.com sells a crammed full DVD, which also includes enough KDE to
get you up and going... it's around $7 delivered ...including postage,
etc. I set it as a repo, with synaptic, and when I start adding back
other packages I need, a good portion come off of the DVD. So, it's more
than just a CD copied to a DVD. I think these folks do a fine job. Ric
