Bit more work, but can we provide two installers?

Installer (a) is a tiny download that then pulls everything it needs
from the net.

Installer (b) is a kitchen sink installer that contains everything.

I've built a couple of SuSE systems recently, and they use that
principle - a net install CD that's a couple of hundred meg, or an
offline install that's a full 4.7Gb DVD.

That way we satisfy both camps, and also nobody gets any nasty surprises
- as always it's the principle of least shock...
