Wonderful! Well done!

A suggestion: if we strip Knoppix down to the bare minimum needed for running 
gnumed, we could run it on an uncompressed file system on the CD which would 
enable us to update CD images via rsync

That way, you can regenerate your trial CD on a rewriteable medium with 
minimal extra download (just the changes instead of the full ISO)- which is 
highly desirable with fast evolving software like gnumed.

Once the file system is compressed, too much changes on the whole image to 
make rsyncing feasible.
