'Everything', "what packages come with f12", will not be on the DVD.
'Everything' will not fit on one DVD. My guess would be 'everything'
would be more like 2 DVDs and a CD or two.

So yes it is quite possible that something, a package or two, or three,
or more, could be installed on your current system and not included on
the original DVD.

What you are looking for for example, tigervnc-server, is in the
'everything' repo as tigervnc-server-1.0.0-1.fc12.i686.rpm and not on
the DVD.
