Some others you can create:
CD1-6 + MPlayer + libcssdvd + mad + ...

That last one could be a nice one.
first make a directory (e.g. ~/media_32bit), then make the following
subdirectories: athlon i386 i486 i586 i686 noarch
Download the needed RPMs into each subdirectory.
Download anything else you might want to add.
run `makeSUSEdvd -a ~/media_32bit` and your multimedia DVD is ready for

I will probably play with the last option tomorrow (after mothers day here

I understand the 'political correctness' of not having the multimedia stuff

I hope it's something Novell look at addressing in the next release.
