Clearly labeled? what does that mean exactly?  The only way to be sure
you have the cds you need.. is to know exactly what is on each cd...
package by package.  You aren't going to break out things with easily
digestable labels in such a way that makes sense to everyone.

You have a KDE cd  and a game cd... which cd has the kde game you
want?  Items can and will be intuitive members of multiple simple
You have a development tools cd  and a java cd... which one
intuitively has the development tools for java? And god forbid we ever
see a java based game.

The only way to be absolutely sure is to have a mechanism likr say a
webpage.. people can go to before they download anything.. where they
run through a mock install-time package selection session and that
form spits out the isos they 'need'
