ON a DVD of course .. with LVM and Raid support would be great ...
Yeah this will icrease the installation process on some Netbooks.
Related idea - alternate installer included: http://community.linuxmint.com/idea/view/1309
If offering an alternate installer would push the CD over to a DVD, then I'd say an alternate version of the CD would be better.
Otherwise, including an alternate installer on the same CD would make that CD more versatile.
In essence, this is a good idea, since I can empathize how slow it can be sometimes to install or fix a installation; but rather offer a new installation media, I think it would be better just to offer multiple options before the installation starts, i.e., "Non/Graphical Install" option the moment Grub boots. The Debian Squeeze offers a text based installation that worked easy on my computer. Nonetheless, like mentioned before, good idea.
It solves many installation problems of people with devices that need some specific driver to be installed. Great idea.
