Partially. A plain FTP mirror will get you current and previous versions of
every package, and all that won't fit on a CD. Use clean_setup.pl
http://home.ix.netcom.com/~mchase/zip/ to parse setup.ini and build a list
of current package files to download.

Just put setup.exe in the same dir as setup.ini and release/
Don't put those 3 in the root of the CD, though, I think someone had
problems with that.
