This is already in place, as best I can. X.org is on disc1 (on purpose
since it's something you can select in the "Distributions" section
before even getting to the "Do you want to browse packages?" menu),
while Gnome and KDE are both on disc2. If you select "All" in the
distributions section it will install X.org during the initial install
phase. If you then install only KDE and/or Gnome it will only ask for
disc2 once you get past the package selection. The combination of KDE
and Gnome basically fill even the newer 700Mb target media sizes so for
it to get any better sysinstall needs to be made smarter.

I am definitely not arguing that point, lots can be done here.
