We probably dont require the following packages on the media:

audit, audit-libs, autofs, diskdumputils, crash, dump, docbook-dtds, 
docbook-style-dsssl, docbook-style-xsl, docbook-utils, ikvm, mtools, 
mono-data-oracle, mono-data-sybase, monodevelop, monodoc, mono-nunit, 
mono-web, mono-winforms, qt, PyQt, exim, postfix, tomcat5-jsp-2.0-api, 
tomcat5-servlet-2.4-api, transmission, xml-common
xml-commons, xml-commons-apis. xml-commons-resolver,xerces-c,xerces-j2 
(some of these seem to be dependencies for 
unnecessarily), timidity++

Reevaluate the following packages being installed:

coolkey (a large majority of our audience dont have smartcard on their 
systems), hpijs, hplip (should be only required when the system has HP 
printers), nfs-utils (why would I need this on a desktop systems?), 
bluez-utils, gnome-bluetooth, nautilus-sendto-bluetooth (Maybe install 
on demand when bluetooth devices are detected?)
