To end this ongoing complaint why not just add an 'INSTALL EVERYTHING' button<
with really BIG warnings what this means, that installs the whole package? I
Mean EVERYTHING! The WHOLE 5 CD's. Or someday 6 CD's. Or 7. Or whatever number.

Then they can complain that TOO MUCH STUFF that I did not want installed was
installed and that it 'took too long'.
