Nice ideas, but afaik the mission at hand is to create a live-cd
that can be handed out on conferences so that people can play with
and read about postgresql, and it can be used perhaps to give demo's
and such. I'd rather have a second cd on the short term instead of
creating a dvd, also because yes there are still people who do not
have a dvd-reader in their laptop/computer (no figures to back up
the significance of this however).

Maybe it is possible to create a cd that boots on pc as well as mac..

Gr,

Koen
