Just a reminder:

Shouldn't be too hard to do: Put a kernel, initramfs and squashfs for 
each architecture on it, adjust the paths in the initramfs accordingly. 
Put package directories for both architectures on it, and put one i686 
and one x86_64 entry in the bootloader.

Adding sizes of i686 and x86_64 core CDs, I get about 600MB, so this 
should work. It's probably not too popular for download, but we want to 
give these away on FrOSCon. I already have Thayer making a variation of 
our CD label a small "FrOSCon 2008" logo on it, so it would be cool if 
the ISO would be there as well.
