Well, if I'm looking for a bootable install CD I usually download
Knoppix which is about 690 MiB plus all packages burnt onto another
CD. So your CD would definitely be a much better way (-;

I know people who download the whole SuSE distribution (about 3 GiB)
just to realize that they can't produce bootable CDs off this. So I
guess 200 MiB are not really a problem.
