Suggestion for a quick fix ("hack" might be the right word):
1. first time one of the extra cd's is read, the user gets a choice to
copy the cd to hard drive, with appropriate warnings for free space,
time to copy, etc.
2. repeat step 1 everytime a new extra cd is needed

the installer would then install from the hard drive, and excessive cd
swaps would be avoided.
As long as this is documented in the install document, and users can
choose to do it or not, we arer not placing any extra burden on those
who do not need it.

Just my 0.2 eurocents.
