Perhaps you should explain to the people you are making the CD for that
~550MB is enough to hold the latest version of everything, but not to hold
everything including a load of old stale package versions, that they will
never use anyway.
Or, use Michael Chase's clean_setup.pl with the -archive option to strip the
old versions out of your download into a seperate archive dir, and burn that
to a second CD.
