Or do you want to have a GUI on the live/installation CD?
In any case, I'd also like to have a X environment on the Live CD. We're
modernizing the rest of the system; the interface should at least be up to
date with, say, 1995.
IMHO, putting a GUI on a live CD will just make it more big and heavy. There are many cases when one may need no GUI but need a rather modern but good, fast and stable system. For the server machine or for hardware diagnostic system any GUI will just be a useless ballast.

I concur with that. If somebody wants to make a nice install/live CD with GUI and whatnot, please go ahead! But I think this should not be the official DragonFly CD. Our nrelease framework and the installer is so flexible, it is very easy to have additional packages and configs added for an "advanced GUI CD"
