I think that would be a great idea! I'd just be sure to mention that
an internet connection is required, but other than that I think it
would be perfect. Adding more options for users to aquire Xfce is
certainly a great thing.
I've never personally done this method (I always just install with the
Xfce Spin Live image) so I'm not familiar if adding the extra repo
will pull in the additional groups and list them in the pacakge
config dialog in Anaconda. Do you happen to know if that's the case
or not? ... just random curiousity. :)
Happy wiki hacking!

Sorry AdamM I forgot to respond to your other question in that last
"I'm not familiar if adding the extra repo will

It does pull in other window managers including LXDE. I use Xfce and
fluxbox on my installs but I always look at the other options
listed : ) It also pulls in additional software (of course) i.e. extra
panel plugins for xfce are available. There is much more software
available prior to install using the DVD method.
