I'm going to have to rethink my plans.

The OS (all filesets but comp52.tgz) plus mutt, xpdf, fluxbox, firefox, and libreoffice_no_java consume 1.2GB, nearly twice the size of a CD and well beyond 1GB sticks (which are 1,000,000,000 bytes or 953 MB). When I replace libreoffice with gnumeric and abiword the size only drops to 1.1 GB. Without the office products its about 626 MB, but it would have less utility; forcing users to use Google Docs, MS Office 365, or other cloud offerings.
