It isn't hard to install "most" packages, just utterly undocumented:
Click on one package to get focus in package list, type Ctrl-A to
select all packages, right click to get context menu and pick
"select all optional packages", repeat for all package groups.

Of course, that probably won't get "all" packages, but it will
get all packages actually listed as optional (why there would
be other packages not listed at all cluttering the dvd is a
question I can't answer).

Why there isn't a button that just does the equivalent of
the above nonsense with the keyboard and mouse is beyond my

I sure wish I knew how to bring up the context menu without
having to use the mouse though, since it is much more
convenient to avoid the mouse in virtual machine installs.
